ARDA (the American Resort Development Association) announced a new web site – ARDA-ROC.org which is dedicated to keeping timeshare owners educated and informed about the legislation and regulatory policies affecting the resorts in each of their states and the industry overall. The ARDA-ROC.org website will be used to communicate with and activate the one million members that make up its Resort Owners Coalition (ROC) about any and all current issues impacting the industry.
Howard Nusbaum, President and CEO of ARDA stated, “ARDA-ROC members are already an active and engaged audience. But now, we will be able to inform and motivate owners to become more vocal with policy makers to preserve, protect and enhance vacation ownership”. He went on to say, “A voting timeshare owner or Home Owners Association (HOA) member who contacts his or her elected official will strengthen the efforts of ARDA-ROC’s legislative team and volunteers”.
The site will provide information regarding current legislative activity throughout the United States and the Caribbean. The site will help owners to stay up to date on what is happening in their State that might affect their timeshare ownership.
ARDA-ROC is currently helping timeshare owners in Hawaii stay up to date on four legislative bills proposing to increase the Transient Accommodation Tax (TAT). The bills are HB 809, HB 1092, HB 1163 and SB 1319.
