The third annual Iowa-Nebraska Rental Dealers Association [INRDA] will meet Tuesday, September 10 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Des Moines, Iowa. The meeting will begin at 9:30 AM followed by lunch at 12:30 PM.

This year’s meeting will feature guest speakers Ed Winn III, APRO General Counsel; Doug Struyk, Attorney at Carney Appleby Law and Iowa Lobbyist; Iowa Representative Karin Derry (D–Iowa, District 39); Leonard Alonzo, RES Accessories; and Lauren Talicska, Wowbrands!

Partner at Martinec, Winn, Vickers, and McElroy and rent-to-own in-demand speaker Ed Winn will present an industry update. Winn comes with unsurpassed rent-to-own knowledge and is considered the nation’s foremost expert on RTO legal and legislative concerns. Winn helped found APRO in 1980 and writes feature articles and a column for every issue of RTOHQ: The Magazine.

Struyk is a former Iowa State Representative from the 99th District. In May of 2012, he was selected by the Speaker of the House to serve as his Executive Officer, a position Doug held until joining Carney Appleby Law.

Derry is the Democratic candidate for Iowa House District 39. She works to protect what has allowed Iowa employers to thrive, such as good public schools that provide both an educated and trainable workforce and an infrastructure that supports businesses.

With more than 37 years of experience, Alonzo is no rookie to the industry. He was a speaker at this year’s RTO World a few weeks ago where he presented Improving Keep Rate, Revenues, and Profits: Proper Product Care and Refurbishment.

Talicska, WowBrands’ Director of RTO Client Services, was also in attendance at RTO World as an exhibitor. She is also newly elected to the APRO Vendor Advisory Committee. Talicska has created and executed marketing plans for RTO dealers for over a decade. She has advocated for the industry for just as long.
