“We look forward to working with Mark and the rest of the RGI team,” said Jason Burns, CLDA’s president. “We chose to work with them because of their impressive record of growing membership, member engagement, member retention and the net assets of the associations they manage. We were particularly struck by their track record of increasing membership among those ages 18 to 40 by 60% over the last five years. These younger members of our last-mile community are the future of our industry and our association.”
