Chuck Violand, RIA's First Vice President, is the keynote speaker, and will discuss with the attendees, ''The Role of an Association (Professional, Transparency, Working for Members)''. Chuck is a restoration industry consultant, published author, and recognised as an authority on entrepreneurial small business.
