Big News at 2016 APRO Convention

May 17, 2016

This year was a great APRO show in Cincinnati, where the Missouri Rental Dealers Association had some outstanding achievements as an association and the people that make it up!  Details below:

1)      "Tiger" John Cleek received the highest honor you can receive at APRO as he was the recipient of the "Lifetime Achievement Award"!!!  As you all know, Tiger was a co-founder of MRDA in 1987, has served on the board ever since, 2 terms as MRDA President, and APRO board member for 13 years, chairing the State Association coordination committee and 2 years as APRO President.   Great job, Tiger!!!


2)      Missouri was the "State Association of the Year"!!!!!   We'd like to think everyone for their hard work in 2015 and we really think that the combination of an excellent trade show and the 5 city community service project was what separated us from the rest.  This is the 6th time that Missouri has won this award, which is the most of any state in the country, and the 3rd time since 2007!!!


3)      Mark Connelly was elected as the new APRO President!!!!   Mark has done a great job on our board, plus serves on the Iowa and Florida boards, APRO board, and the Aaron's board, plus he's the Chief Operator of 50 plus stores throughout the country.
