C.A.R.E. (www.care-online.org) the Cooperative Association of Resort Exchangers, established more than 30 years ago in 1985, continues to gain respectable growth as one of the most valuable trade associations in the industry. Its internationally diverse member base includes Resort Developers, Management and Exchange Companies, HOA’s, Travel Clubs and Wholesalers as well as many respected industry suppliers bringing (value-added) revenue enhancement opportunities. Members that possess rentable inventory or seek inventory for fulfillment of rental requests set the foundation of C.A.R.E. with a multitude of scenarios for securing client vacations, increased inventory utilization and heightened yield management. C.A.R.E. members have the ability to share inventory via week-to-week exchanges, weekly wholesale rentals, guaranteed and free-sale blocks as well as year-round and seasonal leases all over the world.
C.A.R.E. members must comply with a strict Code of Standards and Ethics and will undoubtedly gain professional and personal development when participating in C.A.R.E.’s semi-annual conferences. With nominal annual membership fees and some of the industry’s lowest conference registration rates, C.A.R.E. can prove an undeniable value rather quickly.
