VRMA

    New England Vacation Rental Management Association

    Our next New England Vacation Rental Management (NEVRMA) meeting is soon approaching. It will be held on Monday, December 5 at the Loon Mountain Club www.mtnclub.com in Lincoln, NH. We hope you can make it!  
     
    Accommodations: If you plan to stay overnight, we have reserved a block of rooms at the Loon Mountain Club under New England VRMA (approx. $117/night.) We will also make reservations for dinner Sunday night. Please contact the hotel directly for accommodations and directions.
     
    Cost: $50 per person includes breakfast and lunch
    Suppliers: $250 per company plus $50 per person includes some display space, opportunity to lead Ask the Expert roundtable discussions or facilitate interactive sessions with property managers and, of course, meet the consumers.
     
    Who we are: The NEVRMA is a casual group comprised of property managers, staff and suppliers from Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. We have been meeting for at least 10 years (although not every year) at various locations in several states. Our main purpose has always been for people in our industry, in the New England region, to get to know one another, share knowledge, practices, ideas, build friendships and alliances, and share concerns while we focus on national issues, as well as those more germane to our region. In this quickly changing industry, we welcome suppliers to our meetings to educate us on their perspective and products. We are a networking group and hope the day will provide plenty of opportunity to do so.  
     
    New England is quite fortunate that the founder of our NEVRMA, Maureen Regan, is now president of VRMA, and will be our keynote speaker.
