April 14, 2017 – RCI, the worldwide leader in vacation exchange (NYSE: WYN), announced its 2017 Lunch & Learn Tour for HOA board members, resort general managers, and resort staff. The educational series offers the opportunity to learn the latest about timeshare industry trends, including solutions to engage resort owners, revenue generating and cost saving mechanisms, and ideas on how to run a resort more efficiently.

“The RCI® Lunch & Learn Tour gives resort staff the opportunity to meet in person to hear the latest innovations available to them,” said Erica Gause, director of RCI Business Development. “We are all so busy with our daily tasks that taking the time to step back and learn some of the latest ways to streamline operations and optimize your business can be incredibly worthwhile. This year, the addition of the online webinar component will make this powerful content available to even more people.”

The Lunch & Learn courses are free of charge, and open to all resort staff members. This includes RCI affiliated resort staff, as well as those not affiliated with RCI. Enrollment is open for all nine event locations for 2017:

  • Bellevue, Washington: Wednesday, April 19
  • Whitefish, Montana: Thursday, May 11
  • Daytona Beach, Florida: Tuesday, May 16
  • Hyannis, Massachusetts: Tuesday, June 6

  • Outer Banks, North Carolina: Tuesday, June 27
  • Oahu, Hawaii: Tuesday, September 12
  • Kauai, Hawaii: Thursday, September 14

After three years of successful in-person Lunch & Learn tours, RCI has added a webinar component. The topics will range from RCI Affiliate Access to Strategic Sourcing information to RCI news and updates. These webinars are helpful to those who cannot attend the in-person seminars, but also make for great complements to the content presented at those meetings for those who do attend. A schedule of the 12 webinars is available on RCIAffiliates.com.
