Vendor Advisory Committee

The APRO Vendor Advisory Committee serves an essential function in addressing APRO suppliers’ needs and issues. The committee establishes the direction and helps with many of the details of APRO’s national conference and trade show, while providing an important link between rent-to-own vendors and dealers.

Committee members serve staggered, two-year terms; half of the positions are elected each year at the convention. Bill French of O’Rourke Sales is the committee Vice Chair, serving as a liaison between industry vendors and the APRO President. French also serves on the APRO Board of Directors.

The Vendor Advisory Committee meets twice a year – once at the conclusion of the convention, and again at another agreed-upon time during the year. All committee members participate voluntarily, and assume responsibility for their travel and accommodation expenses.
