WHAT:
Campground Owners of New York (CONY) presents four one-day Zone Meetings at four separate locations across New York State, ahead of the start of the 2013 camping season. Zone Meetings are designed to provide tools and resources to campground and RV park owners and operators to help them make a success of their business. Campgrounds are welcome to attend the meeting convenient to their location.

Presenters will speak on topics including:

  • New initiatives being implemented in 2013 by CONY
  • 2012 campground occupancy survey results
  • Developing disaster plans for parks
  • Legislative and national issues updates; and more. 

The event will also feature a mini trade show of campground-friendly vendors, and a moderated “cracker barrel” session.

WHY:
CONY Zone Meetings are opportunities for CONY members – campground and RV park owners and operators – to start their seasons out with current information in order to make the best business decisions possible, as well as order products from vendors and network with fellow members. They are held annually in four locations to serve the 200 member parks around New York State. Non-member campgrounds are welcome to attend to find out more about CONY and its services and benefits.
