December 2014 Update from the President

Well, that went by fast! I can hardly believe its December and we are making plans for 2015. What an exciting year it has been! I feel very fortunate to work for such a great company and membership, and have enjoyed getting to know each of you, assisting in planning incredible vacations for you and your families to enjoy.

This past year we introduced new properties and partnerships, incredible access to private Clubs and lifestyle experiences (through our partnership with ClubBenefits, powered by Club Corp) and a host of new membership benefits. Our property partners are experiencing an up-tick in real estate sales, membership in Elite Alliance has grown to well over 2,000 and we have new resort properties inquiring on affiliation almost daily. Through exchange and Elite Escapes, we are seeing more member vacations than ever and our members are raving about their experiences. It is a really exciting time of growth for Elite Alliance and I am so glad to be a part of it!

All that said, the single most rewarding part of my job is hearing from Members who consider the Elite Alliance an extension of their lifestyle, enjoying our incredible destinations and service. Lets make 2015 great, together!

We’re expanding...

As mentioned earlier in the year, we are extremely proud to have been selected to provide exclusive exchange services for the highly acclaimed Auberge Resorts Collection. Auberge Resorts and Elite Alliance have partnered allowing both brands to expand the luxury travel options available to their members. The program, Auberge Resorts Collection, powered by Elite Alliance®, became active December 5, 2014.

Committed to our members...

Over the last year we have committed ourselves to providing the highest level of member service and communication. We have produced a number of valuable documents to guide our members through the exchange process. The documents, along with our Trip Guides can be found in our Social Hub.


Welcome to the family...

As our company grows, we remain committed to providing the highest level of personalized service and expanding our member’s travel opportunities. We are committed to our vision, constantly evaluating new properties that will add even more options and enjoyment to our members, without compromising our quality standards. We remain dedicated to selecting luxury, professionally managed properties in the world’s most desirable destinations and 2014 was no exception!
