State and Regional Advocacy
ARDA is the Voice of the Vacation Ownership Industry in State Houses Across the Country
ARDA’s State Government Affairs Team has successfully advocated for legislation and regulation that supports the timeshare industry, its owners, and governing entities nationwide.
The team proactively represents the industry with its rigorous efforts, while continually tracking and responding to policy initiatives that affect vacation ownership across the United States, in the Caribbean, and beyond.
ARDA’s State Government Affairs team is the first line of defense against inequitable and unwarranted taxes and excessive regulation in all 50 states.
With the support of volunteer leaders from ARDA’s membership, we educate legislators and regulators about the timeshare industry — including how important vacation ownership is to local economies, how timeshares are bought and sold (as distinguished from condominiums and hotels), and how to identify scams in the marketplace. This education has helped ensure fair treatment for vacation ownership at the local, state, regional, and international levels.
