Been a few months since we hosted one of these, so I hope you all can chime in!

cant promise it will be as "enlightening" as the debate last night...but Ill do my best!



As always I will be covering the most interesting topics of the past few weeks, and answering any and all questions from owners live on the stream! And Ill announce a very unique upcoming video I think everyone will want to watch!

Watched the whole thing. Video announcement at the end sounds interesting. Was that thread about questions to someone in the insustry really three years old? Or is there a newer one?

Knowing now who you may be talking to I think there are more questions around ARDA-ROC;
  • How much do they bring in annually from, the so called voluntary, contributions?
  • Monetarily, how much do the timeshare developers contribute to ARDA-ROC?
  • If it is truly for owners, why is there only one "owner representative" on the ARDA- ROC BOD?
  • Why is the BOD filled almost exclusively with executives from the big timeshare corporations?
  • Why is the ARDA -ROC BOD not voted on by the owners who contribute the funds to ARDA-ROC?
  • Recently, what legislation has ARDA-ROC successfully fought against that has helped owners?

finished recording the first part of this series today, will take me some time to edit as well as get the thumbs up from Jason before making it public...but I absolutely enjoyed it and learned a good deal myself!

We both agreed to continue with future episodes to cover more of the questions asked in these threads as many are outstanding ones! heck we jibberjabbered for 90 minutes and only go to like 3 questions!

is a rather shocking announcement at the end, interested to see TUG reactions to that when it goes live! stay tuned!

unfortunately did not finish the editing of this video before it was time for the newsletter as the interview was 90 minutes long!

I will have it done this week and make it available to everyone asap!

and no, nothing was actually removed from the video...just removing the breathing and the filler words and getting the transitions between us talking is taking WAY longer than I expected given the length of the video. Im hours into it already and only have the first 45min or so done lol
