SAN DIEGO, CA (February 21, 2013) — Travel To Go hosted C.A.R.E.’s annual 1st Quarter Board of Directors’ meeting at the Wyndham Oceanside Pier Resort, Oceanside, CA from January 24-27, 2013.
As host, Travel To Go provided Board members with transportation, accommodations, meeting space and many of the meals. Travel To Go has been a member of C.A.R.E. since 1991 and Jeanette Bunn, Travel To Go President, has served as a Vice President on the C.A.R.E. Board of Directors since 2005. Ms. Bunn currently serves as Co-Chair on C.A.R.E.’s Going Green and Marketing and Revenue Generation committees. She has also been instrumental in the success of C.A.R.E.’s Silent and Live Auctions having co-chaired the event since its inception in 2005. As a result of Ms. Bunn’s efforts, over $150,000.00 has been raised for C.A.R.E.’s marketing efforts.
According to Bunn, “I volunteer for C.A.R.E. as Vice President to give back to an organization that has been instrumental in our company’s growth. The incredible networking, speakers and learning workshops, have not only been valuable to me personally, but to our other attendees, and office personnel. What we learn from C.A.R.E. has been one of our most valuable travel resources in over 20 years. I give back because I want to help the organization and help it grow so others can reap similar benefits. I also came to realize, after years of being a member that because C.A.R.E. is a volunteer organization, all that reap benefits should give back when they can. “
The 1st Quarter Board meeting is important to C.A.R.E.’s growth and success as annual projects and programs undertaken by the organization’s committees are implemented and evaluated. Additionally, C.A.R.E.’s annual strategic plan is revised. Alain Carr, C.A.R.E. President, states “We cannot thank Jeanette Bunn and Travel to Go enough. They were most gracious hosts and took such great care of us. We had an eight hour Strategic Planning meeting on Friday and another eight hour Board Meeting on Saturday and Travel to Go made all the arrangements without a hitch. It certainly doesn’t hurt that their offices are located in beautiful San Diego either!”
