 Board of Directors Meeting scheduled for March 15

The next meeting of the Board of Directors is scheduled for Thursday, March 15, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. MST. To listen to the meeting call 800-567-5900. When prompted, key in the access code 5340985. As a reminder, this weekend most of the United States returns to Daylight Saving Time. Arizona remains on Standard Time all year.

The Board most recently met on March 2 for the conclusion of a meeting that began on February 16. During both sessions the Board discussed the General Partner Transition and proposed changes to the Reciprocal Exchange Program. The Limited Partnership Agreement requires that any compensation for a new General Partner be recommended by the Board of Directors and approved by the Limited Partners.

The Board has appointed two ad hoc committees to examine the details surrounding these issues and make recommendations to the Board.

Chair of the General Partner Committee is Board Member Jack Florio. The other committee members are Board Members Gary Torrence and Robert Zubenko who are joined by former Board Presidents Brenda Kaplan, Joel Stein and David Bartholomew. The committee is formulating questions and plans to meet by telephone later this week.

Chair of the Reciprocal Exchange Committee is former Board President Connie Clark. Other members of the committee are Board Members Charlie Clist, Christopher Gable and Biffie Kelly.

 Spring Training and March Madness

Major League Baseball‚s Spring Training games continue through the end of the month.

These events, Spring Break and expected good weather are some of the reasons that our rooms are in peak demand.
