Encore Member’s Presentation Summary Aug 17th 2013

If you’ve lost the link to the Encore sales presentation video, you can find it here until Sept 17th 2013.

For some strange reason the original link does not work and the alternative instructions to find the actual video have been removed from the ustream site.
Disappointingly, the presentation elements of the video were missing, leaving only the question and answers session available to the many members that could not attend the meeting in person.

My thoughts about the proposed development

All of us at Reunion have been in a bubble for some time.  We’ve enjoyed almost private use of a beautiful resort in relative seclusion.
The resort needs to move on and the members need to move along with it.
Overall, if implemented well, members will truly benefit form the proposed project.
