The RV Women’s Alliance hired Patricia Carrera, Esq., as managing director, replacing Jessica Rider, who will assist in transitioning the role over the coming weeks.

Carrera reportedly has extensive experience providing strategic leadership and program expertise while driving daily operations, membership recruitment and services, and organizational strategies—”critical as the RV Women’s Alliance continues to deliver on its mission to educate, elevate and promote women in the RV industry.”

“Trish comes to us with incredible experience delivering value to members and partners while harnessing the power of volunteers, something that is very important to the success of our organization,” said RV Women’s Alliance President Susan Carpenter. “The board was very impressed with the breadth of her skills and her passion for promoting women throughout her career.”

Most recently, Carrera was the managing director for professional education at the American Diabetes Association, where she led the planning and execution of its annual conferences, including education strategies, program development, marketing, and virtual and in-person experiences. 

She has held leadership roles with the Association of Legal Administrators, the State Bar of Wisconsin and the American Bar Association. 

“Supporting and promoting women in traditionally male-dominated industries has been a passion of mine for my entire career,” said Carrera. “I am very excited to bring together my personal love of RVing and my professional experiences helping women thrive in their careers through programs and education.”
