Florida Rental Dealers Gearing up for Annual Meeting

The new school year may have started and summer vacations are coming to an end, but the Florida Rental Dealers Association [FRDA] is getting ready for its RTO Life Annual Meeting. This year’s event will be on Tuesday, September 17 and Wednesday, September 18 at the Westin Tampa Waterside in Tampa, Florida.

Tuesday night will open with the Welcome Reception at 5:30 PM followed by the highly anticipated Pirate Pub Crawl into Tampa’s Historic Ybor City. This annual pub crawl benefits FRDA’s scholarship fund and provides tuition assistance to at least three college students each year. The proceeds of last year’s efforts awarded Brandon Collins, Caitlin Miller, and Nadia Zenteno scholarships to apply to their 2019 tuition.

Wednesday kicks off with the annual Vendor Mingle at 9:30 AM. Grab a breakfast pastry and coffee from the complimentary continental breakfast spread and chat with as many vendors as you can about their latest product offerings before settling in for the FRDA business meeting at 12:00 PM. Don’t miss APRO Executive Director Jill McClure at the business meeting. She will provide an update on APRO’s Strategic Plan and take a look back on highlights of RTO World 2019 at 1:30 PM.
