RDO / Structure

The Resort Development Organisation (RDO) is structured to provide an effective industry voice for the best of European timeshare.


The Board of Management is responsible for the overall policy, strategy and governance of the organisation. It is formed by key figures from throughout the industry, including the Chairman, and Chief Executive.


Separate councils have been established to focus on special areas and to recommend policy to the Board.

Communications Council – Protects the use of the RDO name and logo, produces promotional material and organises RDO’s publicity and communications programmes and publications. It is also responsible for industry seminars and conferences.

Legislative Council  – Promotes active involvement of RDO at both national and European institutions to increase the awareness and understanding of the timeshare concept and industry. It also represents RDO on working parties, monitors proposed legislation and provides legal advice to members via the Communications Council.

Membership Council – Recommends membership categories and fee structures to the Board. It also promotes the benefits of membership and is responsible for processing applications, as well as ensuring members records are up to date and accurate.


RDO has its head office in London and an office in Madrid.


The former National Associations throughout Europe act as National Chapters of RDO, helping to ensure that RDO’s objectives are met in the countries represented by members. National Chapters are also responsible for carrying out programmes and agreed activities relevant to their respective market needs.
