(Heber Springs, Ark.) – Joe McAdams, Chairman of AmeriGO RV Club, will be the keynote speaker at the First Annual NRVIA Conference in Heber Springs, Arkansas on October 25th and 26th, 2014 immediately following the Workamper News Rendezvous event.
 
“Our management team has decades of experience in the RV industry and has already built an amazing set of offerings with our allied partners,” said Joe McAdams, chairman of AmeriGO RV Club. “We are building a trusted resource for products, services and information that adds value and security for the RV enthusiast by providing access to and savings at our premier network of RV vendors, dealers, and campgrounds. Our goals are in line with NRVIA, which is to help the RVer enjoy all aspects of the wonderful RV lifestyle.”

(AGI), now Good Sam Enterprises.  He also served as a Board member in those entities and several other companies, including Liberty Publishing Company and Vestcom.
 
This year the NRVIA is focusing on celebrating its successful launch, and sharing some history of where the RV industry has come from and how its members should take hold and become a vital part to the continued success of the RV industry.
 
The NRVIA annual meeting will provide continuing education, announce updates and provide additional training to ensure Certified RV Inspectors are up to date in their skills. The NRVIA is encouraging potential members to attend to learn more about NRVIA and how RVers can become certified inspectors as either a new avocation for themselves or simply to help them understand their RVs better.

NRVIA Certified Inspectors are required to follow specific Standards of Practice and a Code of Ethics that will ensure the consumer receives an un-biased, high quality inspection.

“Our members will walk away from this weekend’s event with the knowledge and motivation they need to take their RV Inspection business to the next level. Joe’s expertise and rich history with the RV lifestyle is a resource that we are honored to have at our inaugural conference,” said Terry Cooper, president of NRVIA.

“We believe the FS-700 is superior to similar devices currently available in the market,” said Howard Taylor, Independence Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The Thermofinder’s exceptional accuracy coupled with consistent reliability and intelligent design, make it easy to use and understand. We believe these attributes will translate into mass market appeal,” continued Taylor. Benefits of the FS-700 also include no cross contamination, ergonomic (one handed) operation, left or right hand use, attractive pricing, easier to use than oral or ear thermometers, built in memory and operates silently. The FS-700 is the first of several medical devices Independence expects to launch.

The Company is currently in production and awaiting delivery of units following the successful fulfillment and deployment of the sales team and has already begun the placement of additional units to satisfy follow-up orders.

The Company’s manufacturing partners produce a broad range of high quality medical device products for use in the professional and home environment. The thermometry products as well the other products are FDA cleared and carry the CE certification with many other worldwide licenses.

The sales team is a proven group of medical device and supply professionals; with specific successful history in the professional and retail sales of next generation thermometry products.

To reflect the major progress achieved and as a next step in the continuance of the business plan of Independence, the Company also announces that it intends to change its name to Independence Health Corp., with the change taking effect as soon as all the filings necessary are approved.
