About Winners Circle
To be entered into the program, resort sales managers nominate an outstanding producer for January through April and for May through August. For both qualifying periods, five regional winners were randomly selected to receive prizes. In early September, all winners were placed into another drawing, and two salespeople per region were chosen at random to attend the Vacation Ownership Investment Conference (inclusive of complimentary conference registration, airfare, and accommodations). All Winners Circle entrants receive certificates of appreciation and lapel pins.
