During The ARA Show™ 2023 in Orlando, Rob Potter, regional manager, Cooper Equipment Rentals, Richmond, British Columbia, Canada, received the 2022 American Rental Association’s (ARA) Leadership Impact Award for Region Ten.
The Leadership Impact Award recognizes an individual whose leadership benefited their state and/or local association and its members over the past year. Potter serves on the ARA of Canada Task Force, a special advisory team made up of Canadian members that was formed last year with the goal of furthering ARA’s presence across Canada. In June 2022, he opened the doors of Cooper Equipment Rentals’ Richmond location for the first in-person ARA member meeting. The event was a well-attended, informative gathering that included face-to-face peer interactions and news on the latest ARA offerings.
“I’m excited and honored to have been chosen to receive the Leadership Impact Award for Region Ten. I know that there are a lot of people who step up and help with their local associations that deserve this award also, so I’m very honored,” Potter said.
