Apparently most owners do not see a decline in the value of their ownership. To some degree, whether or not an owner has seen a decline in owner benefits depends on the length of time the owner has been associated with WorldMark.
I think that speaks volumes, because the number of owners with a lengthy time of ownership is decreasing, while (apparently satisfied) owners with a shorter time of ownership are increasing, and probably increasing the size of their ownership (and their voting power) at a higher rate than long-time owners.
I think a young, vibrant candidate speaking to generational succession would be more powerful than a young, vibrant candidate trying to fight battles on false choices presented by a "non-Millennial" Board of Directors. (Hint: I think most owners who vote identify with the "non-Millennial" BOD). This election put an exclamation point on, "Wyndham (or the WorldMark Board of Directors) is the enemy" as a failed strategy for change. The path for change is to reach current owners through their children, and provide a vision for their childrens' ownership.Just an idea for future elections
I think this election put to bed any ideas of slowing WYN's march to their goals. They beat us like a drum in every aspect. They have complete control of the board and all the votes they need to continue to erode our choices. 10 years from now, if someone were to read our archived posts about the flexibility and cost efficiency of WM, they will think we are a bunch of idealists and old fogies stuck in the past.
Hail to progress!!!
