The Mission of the National Truck-In ® Board is to not only ensure the continuation of a consistently improving, safe and economical National Truck-In ®, but to provide a celebration of the van for the vanning community, and to encourage the regular practice of rotational locations across the United States so that all vanners in society, regardless of sex, age, social background, can join in that celebration.
The original National Truck-in Board ® was announced in
1980. The original members of the board
were hand-picked by Rocky Mountain Vans, holders of the National Truck-in trademark. R.M.V. later turned the trademark rights over
to the board.
The purpose of the Nats Board is to administer the
Nationals, by taking bids and awarding the rights to each year’s hosts. The
Board checks out sites and potential host groups to help insure that the Nationals is as good as it can be each year. Board members are volunteer vanners from
around the country, that have a passion for the Nationals and vanning.
The Board consists of 9 members, 9 alternates, and a support
team that attends the Nationals every year to help the host run various
activities, mainly the show and shine.
There is a Board meeting at every Nationals and in February at the
Council of Councils meeting. Anyone
desiring to join us in our mission to preserve the National Truck-in, please attend
one of our meetings.
