Meeting were held in locations such as Sonoma County California and Anchorage Alaska. It was attended by 60-65 people.

KOA Business Forum,  This small group of similar sized campgrounds met and acted as a board of directors for each other in order to facilitate faster growth of revenues and profits.  I planned the meetings, recruited members, and acted as the facilitator. These meetings were held twice a year in various locations around the country. Each business reported the financial performance of his or her business and shared their future growth plans while soliciting input from the other members. On occasion an industry expert or outside speaker was brought in that had a common interest to all members. Each group had about 6-8 businesses and 12-16 people.
