VRMAWA Fall Meeting – Seattle, WA – October 9 & 10
We are all busy entrepreneurs and I know just how hard it is to get away from your daily duties but as I was reminded recently while reading the book E-Myth, it’s even more important to work “ON” your business than it is to work “IN” your business. I strongly encourage you to take 2 days off from working in your business to do the planning, get the education, and begin to think of new and exciting ways to do business that have huge potential to save you time and make you more money! Join me at the Vacation Rental Manager’s Association of Washington’s Fall Meeting here in Seattle. Presenters lined up so far:
- Introduction to the EMyth Perspective of the Five Core Principles – Christina Ellis, Emyth (a great way to kick start your business planning!)
- Email Marketing – Tracey Warren, Constant Contact
- Building a Reservations Team – Jeffrey McHugh, Navis
- Vacation Rental Industry Updates – Dwellable & HomeAway
Thanks to the generous sponsorship of HomeAway Software for Professionals & CSA Travel Insurance your low registration fee of $125 includes 3 meals including a fabulous dinner and networking event on October 9th! Come prepared to learn and be inspired!
As a fellow vacation rental manager who knows the challenges of our industry I also know the value of stepping away from your business to learn about what’s happening in the industry and strategize news ways to do business.

A good short article as municipalities continue to find balance in VR’s.
VRMAWA has had numerous requests for housekeeping training to be added to our meeting agenda. We are considering adding a housekeeping training component to run simultaneously with our Spring 2013 Membership Meeting. To better gauge the success of such a venture. Please give us feedback on the following proposal.
A full day or day and a half training for your key housekeeping staff. Focusing on standards, efficiency, cost savings, and procedures. Including a hands on training onsite at a vacation rental home. We are interviewing professional vacation rental housekeeping trainers & speakers such as ProResort, for which we would have to pay a speaking fee and travel expenses.
Would you be willing to pay $150-$250 per housekeeper to attend such a training?
If so, how many staff would you send?
Thank you for your feedback!
