Updates on the American Resort Development Association Timeshare Industry Conference

Sell My Timeshare NOW is proud to be a member of ARDA.

This week the American Resort Development Association Conference (ARDA) is convening their 2009 Fall Conference in Washington D.C. As many timeshare owners know, ARDA, is the trade association that represents the timeshare, vacation ownership, and resort development industries. ARDA functions to protect the welfare of both the industry and the consumer, helping to effect the growth, legislation, and beneficial change that makes the timeshare industry stronger and better for all who are a part of it on any level and in any capacity.

A significant aspect of this week’s conference will be the release of two, carefully researched advisories designed to aid consumers and timeshare owners looking to buy, rent, or sell timeshare on the secondary market. This directives look at both the role of the timeshare industry “good guys,” like Sell My Timeshare NOW, and the problem of those companies that prey on timeshare owners who seek to sell timeshare they no longer use or perhaps can no longer afford.

Sell My Timeshare NOW has been actively involved in the development of these advisories since the project first began. As ARDA President and CEO, Howard Nusbaum explains, “This is not an indictment of our reputable resale company members, but rather a problem faced by everyone who loves this industry (and doesn’t love the industry) being painted with the same ‘timeshare scam’ brush.
