ARDA Membership puts you in the forefront of the industry.

Membership in ARDA is the most valuable and cost-effective vehicle available for professionals in the vacation ownership industry to obtain information and expand their network of professional contacts. But ARDA membership also symbolizes much more: a commitment to industry excellence.

Participation benefits both individuals and their companies, through personal development, professional growth, expanded business contacts and clients who appreciate working with other ARDA members. Member participation also benefits ARDA with the many contributions of its volunteer leaders.

“I have always found ARDA staff to be very supportive, very engaged in the industry at large, and always ready to lend a helpful hand or to point new members in the right direction so that they may make the most out of the association and affiliation with thousands of other members in the industry. As you will no doubt come to learn, the timeshare industry is hugely relationship driven and, as such, taking advantage of all the benefits that ARDA has to offer will help you establish and maintain those relationships that will prove fruitful to your organization.”
