RCI presented the donation to the AIF at the opening General Session of ARDA World 2016.
In addition to the donation today, RCI contributed an additional $50,000 USD toward ARDA’s 2016 World Wide Shared Vacation Ownership study. This study includes updates on key metrics and captures the economic impact of the industry from a global perspective.
“The key mission of the AIF is to provide both the financial markets and the resort development communities with the necessary market intelligence and sound research to better understand and compete within the world of vacation ownership,” said Howard Nusbaum, ARDA president and CEO. “RCI’s generosity allows us to better meet these goals.”
Established in 1982 to fulfill the research needs of the industry, AIF has grown to provide a multitude of services to vacation ownership professionals. These initiatives include research and market intelligence, professional education and certification and scholarship programs.
