In reply to your request to rate MHI's effectiveness at advocacy for independent retail/non-corporate MH business, I would have to rate it at best a 5.
For years, we have wondered WHY there was so little pro-industry advocacy from MHI to government movements, proposals, rules, etc. that were not in the best interest of this industry.
Most of those years, it was Danny Ghorbani at MHARR shining a light on the ugly side of those initiatives, contrasted to a conspicuous silence from the MHI folks.
That level of representation from MHI was the basis of Mr. Moore's first mention of the need for an independent retailer's organization about 10 years ago. I haven't seen that need diminish whatsoever! ##
