State Senators to Address Car Rental Show

The American Car Rental Association (ACRA) board of directors and ACRA Executive Director Sharon Faulkner will conduct the annual association update and seminar at the 2014 Car Rental Show at 4:15 p.m. on Monday, April 7.

In addition to the panel session on current and pending issues in the industry, ACRA is pleased to invite two guest speakers, Sens. Mark Hutchinson and Michael Roberson of the Nevada Senate. Sens. Hutchinson and Roberson will provide an insider’s look into the legislative process and how effective lobbying can enact change.

The session will also feature a brief video on how grassroots lobbying can have a positive outcome for an industry, as well as a special video greeting to the car rental community from Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval.

As always, the “ACRA Update and Interactive Panel Session” is also an open forum, giving attendees the chance to be heard, promote action and affect change through the association.

This seminar will take place on Tuesday April 8 at 9:40 a.m. The 2014 Car Rental Show convenes April 7-8 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Visit for more information.
