Caravan Industry Association of Australia would like to congratulate Ron Chapman on being announced as a recipient of a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM).

Ron has been involved in the industry since 1966, and in that time has demonstrated incredible dedication to the industry and its people.

Caravan Industry Association of Australia CEO Stuart Lamont said the recognition was incredibly well-deserved. 

Ron has been CEO of Caravanning QLD for over 25 years, was manager of the Queensland Caravan and Camping Show for 36 years and has been on the organising committee of all held.

He has also been involved in a number of national roles in addition to state duties and has led a number of industry groups on overseas study tours.

Outside of the caravan industry he was awarded Queensland Tourism’s highest award, The Marie Watson-Blake Award for Services to Tourism by an individual in 2009. More recently, he was made a Paul Harris Fellow by Rotary International.  

Congratulations to Ron for this well-deserved achievement!
