March RMAP Update

Lots of good discussion at the lunchtime RMAP general meeting in February. RMAP must work on improving ROI (return on investment) results to our automotive partners at events like RMDE via improved visibility and social media exposure. Our thanks to RMAP member Mia Voss for her presentation at the Colorado Auto Dealers Association meeting. In the meantime, any posts on social media sites should use the hashtag #RMAP for members at future events promoted by our organization. 

March will have plenty of planning work in preparation for the 2018 RMAP Car/Truck/Crossover of the Year awards at the Denver Auto Show (DAS) Preview Party in early April. Toyota has just signed on to host the dinner that evening (4/3/18) and all 2018 RMAP members are cordially invited to attend. Please be sure to RSVP on the events page below this announcement, so we have an accurate number.

Development of the DAS Media Day schedule the following day (4/4/18) continues and get ready for a full slate of press conferences and meals to be announced later this month. Those RMAP members who wish to attend the DAS activities must be current 2018 members who have paid their dues. At $50/year for early registartion, they can be paid using the PayPal option on the RMAP main page (below).
