TATOC, the European Timeshare Association, has announced the appointment of Emily Collins, a new co-opted board director. Emily oversees TATOC’s two websites. She is also responsible for the publication of the Association’s outstanding quarterly magazine, Sharetime. Emily has been working with TATOC for the past three years.
Harry Taylor, executive chairman of TATOC, says, “Emily has been involved with the industry for nearly 20 years and has a huge wealth of industry experience. She has been providing marketing services to the association for three years and has become a valuable member of the team. We believe that the board will be enhanced with her appointment.”
At the most recent TATOC conference, the Association announced that it was looking to develop a stronger board of quality directors with a wider scope of experience. Harry Taylor explains, “The timeshare world is changing and TATOC has a number of objectives to support our members and affiliates tackle the challenges we are facing. The board needs to call upon the knowledge of industry professionals to help us achieve these objectives.”
Among the objectives of TATOC are to grow, improve, and become stronger. TATOC feels it must build on relationships and partnerships within the industry. Says Harry, “We need greater recognition, more publicity and increased visibility and awareness. We believe developing the board will help us with this.”
The Voice of European Timeshare
TATOC is The Timeshare Association (Timeshare Owners and Committees). The organization was founded in 1989 and is the only elected consumer association representing the interests of European timeshare owners. Across Europe, 95 vacation ownership resorts are members, which mean more than 350,000 timeshare owner-member families.
TATOC works to be the voice of European timeshare owners, while safeguarding and enhancing the vacation ownership holiday experience for existing and prospective timeshare users. The Association’s focus includes: growing its membership base, raising the profile of the Association, and establishing TATOC as the recognized voice of the European timeshare consumer and an informed point of contact for the vacation ownership industry.
