Jon Zwickel, President and CEO of CVOA says “coming on the heels of our extremely successful conference, I’m pleased to announce the new leadership of CVOA’s Board of Directors.  One of the clear messages surfacing from the event was the importance of value-added services for timeshare members and their resorts.  With DAE and RTX well represented in this group, the message to our constituency is ‘we hear you.’  We look forward to the views of these two exchange organizations and well as the concise legal insights Will Lambert brings to the table.”
