AVO and RTX Go Live on Facebook on #NationalBeHeardDay

Let’s call it a conversation. We’ve called them webinars, but that’s too formal and not really accurate. Today we hosted RTX Inventory Manager Beth Arlington, Team Lead Ed Robertson, and Director of Resort Partnerships Corina Violette in a casual round table discussion aimed to inform and educate members. They were joined by Gregory and Christy Crist from the Association of Vacation Owners (AVO.)

If you missed the broadcast on RTX’s Facebook page, please click here to see an archive on the RTX Youtube page.

The conversation was on National Be Heard Day, a consumer advocate day designed to jump start conversations on consumer education. The RTX team educated members on how to find the best vacation options for their families, how to stay educated about their ownership, the flexibility and freedom of exchange, and more.

Join the RTX team again next week for another Facebook live conversation on International Ask A Question Day, March 14, where they will answer questions posted during today’s event. Have an RTX question about your membership? Comment on Facebook or the RTX Youtube page, and we’ll answer it. You can also hit us up on the RTX Twitter page.

Thanks for tuning in, and happy travels!
