Let Your Consumer Voice Ring Through a Special RTX Webinar on National Be Heard Day

By on February 15, 2018 in Blog Posts | RTX Traveler Magazine

Hello, travelers. We’ll be celebrating National Consumer Protection Week March 4-10 with a special webinar, social media shout outs, timeshare industry guest commentary and blog posts all about consumer rights, as well as some talk about fun travel inspiration in today’s digital world. We’re always in your corner when it comes to consumer protection, and a big part of that is education, so let’s get educated.

Our last webinar with RTX Inventory Manager Beth Arlington was tremendously well received, with numerous questions and comments from our members throughout the presentation. We’re thrilled that Beth was able to assist so many travelers with their questions, so we’ve decided to host another webinar on National Be Heard Day, Wednesday, March 7.

This time we’ll be focusing on creating a dialog with our members about the positives as well as the negatives you need to know about the timeshare industry. We’ll talk about how to find the best vacation options that work for your family within the membership you have, how to stay educated about your ownership and the flexibility and freedom of exchange in using our independent timeshare exchange company. Beth Arlington will be joined by Corina Violette, Director of Resort Partnerships at RTX as well as representatives from the Association of Vacation Owners (formerly the National Timeshare Owners’ Association) who can help answer questions and provide resources.

The travel knowledge shared between Beth and Corina is vast:

Beth Arlington started in the timeshare industry at RCI, and has worked at RTX since 2013. She primarily provides support and educates call center staff on exchange processes, and manages RTX inventory on a day to day basis by working closely with resort operations.

Corina Violette started her career in the travel industry nearly 13 years ago and has been with RTX since the beginning in 2012. She participates on many discussion panels and sessions at industry events, presents at several annual meetings and owner advocacy conferences to educate timeshare owners about RTX and their various options, and works closely with RTX’s affiliated resorts to provide solutions and support to their staff and owners.

Greg leads the AVO as CEO with more than a decade of professional experience in association management and non-profit development. Under his leadership, the organization has expanded into Canada and created a comprehensive new member education series that promotes the use and benefits of vacation ownership in North America.

Christy Crist is the Director of Operations at AVO. Christy is an experienced project manager and a new member of the timeshare community. She brings 15 years of financial and operational experience to participate in the growth of AVO. As a project manager and former member of Project Management International, she has been a driving force in creating and developing new businesses with a foundation for success.

This webinar will be broadcast live on the RTX Facebook page. Stay tuned for the specific time of this Facebook live broadcast as well as further blog posts regarding consumer protection in March.
