The Cooperative Association of Resort Exchangers (C.A.R.E.) is proud to announce that is has joined the Global Secondary Market Coalition (GSMC) launched by the Association of Vacation Owners (AVO) earlier this year.
The GSMC is as a multi-national alliance of industry stakeholders that are engaged in creating best practices, reviewing current licensing requirements and establishing a code of ethical and responsible conduct for secondary market service providers in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
With increasing complaints, continuing scrutiny by regulatory agencies and an ongoing need to maintain public trust, the AVO is encouraging leaders in the timeshare community to participate in the GSMC. C.A.R.E. member companies (and their customers) are being affected daily with secondary market activity and/or participating in it directly. C.A.R.E.’s Mission Statement is, “To promote ethical and outstanding vacation services by providing education and networking opportunities”. Therefore C.A.R.E.’s Board of Directors felt it was imperative to the association’s mission to get involved as a stakeholder in this initiative.
