In 2006, two class action lawsuits were filed against RCI on behalf of members to address complaints regarding the renting of deposited weeks. While the lawsuits are now nearing a conclusion, some members still have questions as to how the proposed settlement will affect their timeshare exchanges. Holiday's upcoming webinar will examine this and other related issues in depth.

Web seminars, popularly referred to as webinars, are a convenient alternative to traditional seminars, allowing people to participate via their computers from home or work. Attendees see and hear the live seminar, and can even interact with questions or comments of their own. Visit for more information about Holiday's popular webinar series.

The webinar will feature guest speakers Ray Jacobs and Shep Altshuler, founders of TimeSharing Today magazine ( "The class action lawsuit filed against RCI by timeshare owners is an effort to limit RCI's practice of renting deposited weeks to the general public instead of holding them for exchange to its members," said Jacobs.

Holiday's Director of Sales, Gail Bennett, will host the webinar. "Consumers have a right to voice their opinion, band together, and make a statement," Bennett said. " I think a lot of folks are curious as to how the proposed settlement will affect them, both now and in the future. This webinar will address those concerns."

Topics to be covered in the webinar include:

-Background of the RCI Class Action lawsuit
-Terms of the proposed settlement
-Should you opt-out of the lawsuit?
-Can you still file an objection?
-TimeSharing Today's proposed objection

"There are many advantages to joining the TimeSharing Today family of subscribers," Altshuler noted. "What we'll be sharing in this webinar about the RCI lawsuit is just one example of that. Information published in TimeSharing Today magazine enables owners to make independent and informed decisions about important timeshare issues that affect them."

Holiday's webinars offer real-world knowledge about timesharing in a no-pressure, consumer friendly environment. The "RCI Lawsuit" webinar will last about 30 minutes and then be followed by an open question and answer session.

"We are very excited to have TimeSharing Today's Ray and Shep share what they know about this issue, and help bring some clarity to it," said Bennett. Exchanges are one of the key values of timeshare ownership, so anyone interested in this subject won't want to miss the webinar."
