ABA Statement on Motorcoach State Rally Next Week

Dear Members,

Several of you have asked about UMA/ABA's involvement in the state Rally for Awareness, that is now scheduled for June 3. As background, both ABA and UMA were very much involved and supportive of the very successful D.C. rally on May 13, which had broad support from manufacturers and state associations, as well as the entire motorcoach industry.

The state events that are being planned for June 3, 2020 do not include any involvement from ABA and UMA. Our focus continues to be the mission of directly influencing the federal government, specifically lawmakers in Congress, to support our industry.

We wish the June rally coordinators well and have encouraged them to adhere to the code of conduct and positive messaging that worked so well in D.C.

As always, we continue working for you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time.
