Nominations open for CVOA Cornerstone Award
The Canadian Vacation Ownership Association (CVOA) has opened nominations for its prestigious Cornerstone Award, which recognises a truly outstanding shared ownership innovator.
Last year, the CVOA Awards Committee selected Resort Travel & Xchange (RTX), a timeshare and vacation ownership exchange company based in Asheville, North Carolina, from a highly competitive group of qualified candidates.
The formal Cornerstone Award presentation will take place during VO-Con 2018, the association’s annual vacation ownership conference scheduled for 25-27 September at the Westin Trillium House Resort in Blue Mountain, Ontario, Canada.
The award goes to an exceptional professional or company that has:
- Seized an opportunity, addressed a need, solved a problem and created a game changing value proposition;
- Communicated in compelling ways, engaged the marketplace and achieved outstanding results and commercial success; and/or
- Will have a lasting positive impact on vacation ownership, the environment and society and is an inspiration to CVOA stakeholders.
The nominee may be any company, HOA, individual or vacation ownership project currently active in the industry who achieved their accomplishments during the past 18 months ending 31 August 2018.
Broad categories for the award include Project Excellence, Transaction Excellence, Innovation, HOA/Owner Relations, Communications/Public Relations/Marketing and Sales, Rental Programs, Green/Sustainable Programs and Community Service and Philanthropy. A nominee only needs to meet the criteria in one of the categories.
Entries must be received by CVOA by 7 September 2018. Three finalists will be selected by the CVOA and the Cornerstone committee will judge these three and select a winner.
