Marriott and Bluegreen Report High Value in Organization
Las Vegas, NV (March 4, 2010) -– Women in the Industry (WIN) is pleased to announce two more of its initial corporate members have recommitted to another year of support. As a founding benefactor and sponsor of WIN’s recent Florida Regional Meeting, Marriott Vacation Club International (MVCI) has re-enlisted as a champion of the two-year old non-profit organization.
“We are impressed that WIN has kept many our key industry employees engaged and productive during these tenuous times,” said Lani Kane-Hanan, Sr. Vice President at MCVI. “We support the concept of diversity that WIN so enthusiastically promotes, but as importantly we’ve seen some concrete benefits such as educational and training sessions held by the organization.”
Bluegreen Corporation, which also sponsored the WIN Florida event, has signed up once again as a corporate patron for 2010. “The WIN group accomplished so much at a grass roots level in the past two years that we are proud to be established as one of its growing roster of corporate members. Its education committee is formulating an impressive platform of research studies which will give us a body of knowledge to improve our product and the way it is marketed over the next few years,” said John M. Maloney, Jr, President and CEO.
Women in the Industry (WIN) advocates, educates and connects women in the vacation industry. It is a dynamic, diverse, non-partisan global organization providing leadership, mentoring, philanthropic and educational opportunities to women and those who support women; connecting members locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
The group will also hold their annual networking event during the annual American Resort and Development Association (ARDA) Convention in Las Vegas on March 16th from 5:30-7:30 at the Double Helix at the Venetian Resort.
