About TBMA

TBMA was established as a non-profit association. Its purpose is to provide educational resources to its Members: HOA Board Members and onsite Resort Managers. TBMA meetings are key to fulfilling the Association's Mission to its members. Every Board Manager and Resort Manager should join TBMA and actively participate in meetings. Since our inception in 2011, meeting attendees have significantly benefitted from peer-to-peer networking, educational panels and case studies that demonstrate how resorts are implementing positive change.

No resort should operate in a vacuum. The challenges facing owner-controlled resorts in today's economic environment and business climate are significant. Mananging delinquency rates, fraudulent transfers, inventory of unsold intervals are among the vital issues pertaining to governance by HOA Boards and managers. Recognizing the issues and creating a plan for dealing with them are urgent. While many resorts are now working through their plans, some may be facing the fact their timeshare is no longer viable and may have to unwind its plan in the not too distant future.  You should plan on joining TBMA and attending our next meeting.
