The Timeshare Industry Today
President/CEO Jason Gamel
As many in our resort communities begin to re-open this week, ARDA, along with ARDA-ROC are proud to share the Timeshare Safe Welcome, a set of recommended guidelines to help define the role of the timeshare industry in promoting the health and safety of our owners, guests and employees. Many members have already communicated their policies to their employees and guests. For those looking for additional resources, these recommendations are developed based on COVID response leading practices and are intended to compliment, but not replace, those of state and local authorities. We expect that these guidelines will change and evolve over time based on the recommendations of public health authorities.
This information is intended solely for the purpose of providing the timeshare industry with top line health and safety guidance during the reopening phase of the economy. The information contained in these guidelines is general in nature and should not be considered to be medical, legal, insurance or any other professional advice.
We invite you to use and share these guidelines within your resort with your employees, your owners and the public.
