A three-day event for those who travel in their RVs, or dream about traveling by RV while working at various campgrounds, state and federal parks, theme parks, resorts or any job imaginable, will take place in Heber Springs, Arkansas, home of Workamper News headquarters in North Central Arkansas. The event is scheduled for April 17 through April 19, 2012, at the southern doorstep to the beautiful Ozark Mountains. Heber Springs is famous for its’ abundant outdoor activities, especially on Greers Ferry Lake and the Little Red River. Camping in their RV at one of the numerous Corps of Engineer parks in the area, the RVers will get together for fun, networking and learning how to be successful Workampers.
15 different seminars covering a wide range of Workamping topics — “experiencing the Workamping lifestyle to RV Maintenance and Repair Knowledge to “Disinherit the RV Service Guy.”
Several Featured Employers will virtually attend and share their insight into the Workamper programs they have established and possibly be scouting for future positions with their companies.
America’s love of cooking won’t be left out, when Evada Cooper, author of the new RV Centennial Cookbook attends for a book-signing.
More than anything, getting together with like-minded individuals and couples who enjoy America, one job at a time, will be the highlight of the programs.

About Workamper News
Workamper News began in 1987 as an eight-page newsletter distributed to a niche market. The term Workamper, a registered trademark, was coined by then-owners Greg and Debbie Robus, to describe anyone who combines any kind of work with the RV camping lifestyle. Designed to put mostly retired or semi-retired RVers and employers together, the publication initially focused on campground jobs. Today, the four-color magazines contain at least 62 pages of information about job vacancies from coast to coast in the United States and some in Canada, as well as features on great Workamping destinations, Workamper and Employer profiles, and general information pertaining to Workamping and Rving. The introduction of the internet enabled Workamper News to expand its services through the years; besides the print and online magazine, Workamper members participate in a variety of forums, webinars,
Situations Wanted and resume posting, blogs and communities. They are educated through the Workamper University program. Employer clients post job opportunities, review resumes, showcase their campground, state or national park, or business opportunities. An online store sells books and DVDs for the RVer and Workamper. Since 2005, owners Steve and Kathy Jo Anderson diligently manage the operations. Daughter, Jody Anderson Duquette joined the Company in 2006 after earning a graphic design degree. Techie-husband Luke Duquette, came on board in 2010. Seven employees work in-house at 110 Tulaka Blvd, Suite C in Heber Springs, AR. Workamper News continues to expand their horizon, providing marketing tools for both Workampers and Employers to be successful.
