President's Message


Dear FVMA Membership:

I am excited to be the current President of the Florida Venue Managers Association.  I have been involved as a board member since I arrived in Florida to manage the RP Funding Center in 2015.  As we work to get to a “new normal”, or like I say, back to normal, I am encouraged by the sharing of information that FVMA members have shown over the past several years as we battled through the pandemic. 

The FVMA board and membership have been a wonderful source of solutions and support during the most challenging time we have faced in our history.  This association started with a few very forward-thinking Florida venue mangers that saw the need to share ideas and fun.  FVMA has turned into a committed group of venue experts that we can continue to rely on and learn from as well as work to improve our overall venues without any competitive distraction.  

The Membership Committee has been busy working on new initiatives to grow the membership.  I look forward to working with the committee on these innovative initiatives to continue to work to bring in new members.
Our annual conference continues to be our best asset, we are working hard to make it a reality this year after a few off years. 

If I can be of any assistance to the membership, do not hesitate to contact me direct.  Good Luck!

Tony Camarillo
Executive Director, RP Funding Center
