The Perspective Magazine Awards recognizes companies and individuals for their achievements within the vacation ownership industry over the past year and is considered one of the highest honors within the industry. The 2019 Perspective Awards were judged independently by a group of industry experts combined with online votes from industry peers and presented during an awards lunch party sponsored by Holiday Systems International and INTUITION during the GNEX 2019 Conference.

Established in 1985, C.A.R.E. has hosted semi-annual conferences up through the Fall of 2017 and since 2018 has hosted annual conferences. Its 67th conference in 34 years will be held at the Westin Indianapolis from May 4-7, 2019. C.A.R.E. was formed to provide enhanced vacation fulfillment options for owners during a time when exchange companies were experiencing some early growing pains.  Since its inception, C.A.R.E. has been run almost solely by volunteer members and has been led by President Linda Mayhugh (C.O.O. / Gunn Marketing Group, Inc.) for the past four years.  Mayhugh has very effectively strengthened C.A.R.E.’s strategic alliances with multiple industry associations including ACOTUR, AMDETUR, ARDA, AVO and CVOA.

It’s an extreme honor, and I’m very proud, to have received this award from Perspective Magazine on behalf of C.A.R.E.,” Mayhugh commented.  “By strengthening these association alliances, we have removed global borders and expanded worldwide opportunities resulting in greater growth for our shared industry; both financially and organizationally.  It is a primary goal of mine, as President of C.A.R.E., to continually seek beneficial avenues that will create more shared value among all in our industry.
