Lakeland, FL (December 3, 2014) — Advantage Travel – a full service membership based travel agency serving customers primarily in the US, Canada and Mexico – is proud to announce that Chief Operating Officer Linda Mayhugh has been nominated to be President of the Cooperative Association of Resort Exchangers (C.A.R.E.). Advantage Travel’s core business is and always has been fulfillment of vacation club members’ travel needs, with a growing expertise and focus on resort and club model revenue solutions across the industry.
“After more than 30 years in the vacation industry, it has been an honor and privilege to serve as a Vice President of the C.A.R.E. Board of Directors for the last five and a half years,” says Mayhugh. “It was even more of an honor to accept current C.A.R.E. President Alain Carr’s nomination for President of the C.A.R.E. organization at the Fall 2014 C.A.R.E. Conference in Seattle, WA this past October.”
General Members will cast their votes at the Spring 2015 C.A.R.E. Conference being held in Annapolis, MD in May. Mayhugh told those in attendance at the Seattle Conference, “Even with ‘C.A.R.E. President’ behind my name, if elected I cannot run the organization alone. C.A.R.E. is an organization run primarily by volunteers that have a passion and desire to expand the vacation industry and help it prosper for years to come.”
