South Carolina and Southern California Events to be Held November 12-13
Orlando Conference Slated for January 28-29
LAS VEGAS, NV (October 12, 2010) –Women in the Industry (WIN), an organization professionally supporting and cultivating women leaders of tomorrow in the vacation industry, has announced three upcoming Regional Conference events.
The South Carolina Conference will be held at The Harbour Lights Resort in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on November 12 and 13. The Southern California Regional Conference will take place the same weekend (November 12-13) at the newly renovated Carlsbad Inn, located on the ocean in Carlsbad, California, just north of San Diego. Early bird registration fees for the gatherings are available through October 15. Non WIN members are invited to a Friday evening “meet and greet” social hour. Programming on Saturday November 13 includes experts with Economic Updates, Communications Strategies and Workplace Solutions for women and those who work with women in the shared ownership and vacation industries.
The first regional conference of the growing organization was held last January in Orlando. A second Orlando event is scheduled for January 28-29, 2011 at the Marriott learning center.
Sponsors for the upcoming events include Global Vacations Marketing Corporation (Laguna Niguel, CA) and FARROW Commercial who will sponsor The Southern California event. Other initial sponsors include Tartan Management (Myrtle Beach) who is sponsoring in part the South Carolina meeting.
While membership is not solely for women, the non profit organization is committed to fostering the growth of women in the shared ownership industry by connecting and mentoring them through charity, business, educational and networking events. Additionally the new group facilitates research in the vacation industry, organizes and implements community and philanthropic activities and promotes and recognizes women’s achievements in the vacation industry.
WIN’s cause is supported in part by individual memberships, corporate benefactors, patrons, and friends. Benefactors are Group RCI, I.C.E., Marriott Vacation Club International, Wyndham Worldwide, C.A.R.E., and Shell Vacations. Patrons of WIN are Bluegreen Corporation, ResorTime.com and Spirit Incentives.
