Sorry if this has been posted already, as I am relatively new here. Much like the Thread about the Hilton status and its effective dates, what will the effective dates of the Executive Status be? If I claim that award at this time, will it just last until 02/2014 when the status re-ups, or will it also go until 02/2015? Forgive me for the newbie question, I am just unfamiliar with the Elite Status at National and want to make sure that I get the most benefit as I may not be renting much until after the first of the year. Thanks!
