Our team remains focused on key priorities which include rigorous advocacy efforts with the new administration and lots of planning in the virtual events and convention world. Link into the highly successful WIN event below and please mark your calendar for Timeshare Together - 2021 Spring Conference, June 6-10 at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes, Orlando FL.

The latter group are the bills we discuss with LPC participants on a weekly basis, along with any other issues affecting the industry. Some of the more recent developments include:
These are just some of the issues that we are currently working on with the LPC. For more information on the LPC and how to get involved in legislative issues, please visit the ARDA website or reach out to a member of the team.
