National Timeshare Owners Association Announces Name Change to Association of Vacation Owners


The National Timeshare Owners Association (NTOA) is a vacation owners association formed in 1997 as a means to help educate and advocate for timeshare owners and has recently announced it’s name change to Association of Vacation Owners (AVO) with new missions and objectives for their organization in the United States.

NTOA has committed to AVO with the purpose of expanding their services and support to more timeshare owners in North America. They are now looking for partners in the timeshare industry willing to take the AVO Service Pledge, which states they will be the voice for vacation owners for increased communication, protection, and more.

In addition to these goals, AVO is also working towards other efforts, such as challenges often found in the secondary market. They hope to help mend and reinforce many of the relationships between owners, businesses in the industry, and develop a better sense of community.

CEO Gregory Crist had this to say about the shift:

“We are very pleased to expand our alliances to include credible organizations that share our vision to improve education, engagement and support for timeshare and vacation owners. AVO is also attracting thousands of vacation owners by continuing its twenty-year history of dedication and focus on providing owners with the tools and information they need to strengthen their ownership experience.”
