An associate can book a reservation. You will find the specifics on the DVC Member website.

Transferring title requires legal documents and a new title.

From DVCMember.com:
Quote:
A "Purchaser" or "Additional Purchaser" is a person that is named on the deed of the Ownership Interest. Purchasers are also referred to as Club Members. The Primary Purchaser is the first person named on the deed. While a reservation confirmation is normally mailed to the Primary Purchaser, any Club Member may request to receive the reservation confirmation instead of the Primary Purchaser. Additionally, all financial information pertaining to the ownership interest, including Annual Dues Statements and Form 1098 (reporting mortgage interest), will be mailed to the Primary Purchaser. To designate a different Primary Purchaser to receive the financial information mailings, a request must be submitted in writing to Membership Administration and must be signed by all Purchasers. All Purchasers have equal ownership rights and all Purchasers receive Member Cards.
An "Associate" is a person named by the Purchaser or Purchasers who is only authorized to make reservations using the Club Member's Home Resort Vacation Points. Associates do not receive Member Cards and are not entitled to the benefits and privileges that are available to a Club Member. In addition, Associates may not access financial information related to the Annual Dues and/or loan pertaining to the Club Member's Ownership Interest.

Associates get no perks. No discounts, no member card, no discounted PAP. You can't go up to the Top of the World Lounge.

i always thought of it as a convenience thing. i have been an associate on my grandparents membership for years and until he passed away recently my grandfather was on mine. i often made reservations for him.

associates...i believe... are about access/ability to book but not ownership.

I thought they eliminated associates to try and mess with Brokerage Rentals.

They limited the number of accounts an individual can be an associate member on.

They didn't eliminate associates they limited a person to being an associate on 4 memberships max.
