When we announced the Host Advisory in December, we said we'd look to this group of hosts to represent you and help highlight the things that really matter to hosts within Airbnb.
To make sure they understand the needs and perspectives of our global community, the Advisory Board members are active in different ways: from contributing here in the Community Center to leading local hosting groups, to participating in product and policy feedback sessions.
All of the Advisory Board members are active hosts and represent hosting from countries all around the world. They all have different stories and reasons for why they host. They are excited to get to know you, and we hope you will get to know them.
Many of you have already been speaking with Till, Nutth, Bez and Peter, here in the EN CC.
I ask you to support the Advisory Board members by continuing to surface the great knowledge and insights we see here everyday. Make them feel welcome here and get to know them, they want to hear your ideas and make a difference for all of our community. They need your support to do this. You can also use the tag #HostAdvisoryBoard to highlight topics to them.
Each month a different Advisory Board member will be representing the group and providing an update in the Resource Center and we’ll be carrying on the conversation here on the CC. In the meantime, @Susan208 is our first spotlight of the year, please take a look here. You can also meet Susan at our Community Center meetup on Tuesday February, 23rd 1PM (PST)–to join view this post here.
@Omar202 will be providing a February update, so do look out for that in a couple of weeks. 🙂
Lizzie (and all of the EN CC team)
Hi I have a few hot topics on my radar
One is insurance - obtaining info on short term rental insurance for properties in USA, Canada and The Caribbean. Appreciate insights on this topic and contacts for Insurnance brokers and who is underwriting short term rental insurance.
2nd would be great to share pricing with others. We maybe able to do better as a group.
The 2nd topic is finding banks willing to finance short term rentals properties in Canada, USA and the Caribbean. Seems to be a limited market.
Appreciate info related to each of these countries.
