9:45 am-11:30 am  Taking Control of the Timeshare Narrative

Over the past few years, we as an industry have allowed others whose goals are to separate happy owners from their timeshares, to "control the airwaves" and influence/damage our industry reputation. 2018, however, is the year when the industry fights back by busting various myths, and sharing the truth about the timeshare product and its path of better vacationing. This interactive session is the opportunity for our Trustee members to share their thoughts about how best to angle our strategic messaging, as well as establish a platform and plan--working together as ARDA and ARDA-ROC with agency support.
