Harrisonburg, VA (April 2, 2014) — With a combined total of over 27 years of service to the C.A.R.E. Board, Treasurer Vicki DiFabio, Vice Presidents Jeanette Bunn and Tina Hill, will retire from their positions at the expiration of their terms at the upcoming Spring C.A.R.E. conference in Destin, FL.
As C.A.R.E. Treasurer for the past 10 years, Vicki DiFabio of Tartan Management has been responsible for the stewardship of the association finances. Vicki has done an exceptional job of ensuring the fiscal health of C.A.R.E. In addition, she has served on the Member Benefits, Speaker and Conference committees. Her contributions have resulted in various benefits being made available to C.A.R.E. members as well as numerous memorable conferences throughout her tenure.
Jeanette Bunn of Travel To Go has served as Vice President for 9 years. As chairperson of the Marketing/Revenue Generation committee Jeanette implemented the Silent and Live Auctions as well as the Super Raffle which are conducted at C.A.R.E.’s semiannual conferences. Proceeds from these popular fundraisers are used for marketing to attract new members to C.A.R.E. and to augment conference expenses which result in one of the vacation industry’s best conference values.
Vice President Tina Hill of Leisuretainment has served on the C.A.R.E. Board for 8 years. Tina’s outstanding contributions to both the Membership and Sponsorship committees will make her hard to replace.
