Points Resort Merging Changing my points value with RCI

Hopefully someone can give me advice me with this situation. Several years ago we purchased points with a Canadian Resort Company with the idea of using the time at their resorts. Two years ago they opened an account for me with RCI (which I did not want and stated so at the time of purchase), and deposited my points into the account.
The points are totally paid for and the yearly maintenance is due July 1st.
This year we received a letter that they were allowing people to apply monthly payments to their maintenance through auto checking account withdraw. Since I do not like that system, I sent postdated checks.
I just received a letter notifying me of an owners' meeting to vote to merge with Vacation Internationale Timeshare Program of Washington. They will give us 1 point for every 420 that we currently own for exchange within their network, and the same for RCI.
I am not pleased and am willing to walk away from the entire program as long as I will not be held in default for future maintenance fees.
I feel they have violated the terms of my original purchase, and I am not getting what I contracted for. Am I correct, and what should I do?
