Harrisonburg, VA – September 2018 / Newsmaker Alert / C.A.R.E., the Cooperative Association of Resort Exchangers, has selected a second keynote speaker for their 2019 Conference to be held in Indianapolis, Indiana from May 4th-7th at The Westin Indianapolis. C.A.R.E.’s inaugural annual conference this past April in Austin, Texas ranked higher in attendee satisfaction than C.A.R.E.’s previous four semi-annual events. When asked what she felt contributed to the higher ratings President Linda Mayhugh stated, “Our Board of Directors and Administrator worked diligently for over a year to meticulously boost agenda content, conference attendance, sponsorship and overall attendee satisfaction for our inaugural annual conference. We simply extended our agenda by a few hours and loaded it with nearly everything attendees would have received attending two conferences per year. The ultimate goal was to make it bigger and better than two and we feel we did just that. You can expect more of the same in 2019!”
