- Education, Encouragement, Information and Networking from Regular Association Meetings
Programs are planned that will yield insight and encouragement. Opportunities for networking provide additional one-on-one mentoring and problem-solving for innkeepers. Friendship opportunities stimulate on-going improvements in the way we all do business and provide additional outlets to advertise our inns and acquaint the public with who we are and what we have to offer as individual facilities and as an industry.
- Ideas Shared, Issues Discussed, Questions Answered
Monthly meetings are intended to provide specific answers to questions. The Association puts a major emphasis on the sharing of ideas and this provides opportunities to learn about issues we may not have faced yet individually but can be better prepared for when they do arise.
- Advertising Advantages, Referral Opportunities
Cooperative advertising of each bed and breakfast within the Association. Knowing about each other's availability, facilities, and amenities helps make referrals to fellow-innkeepers easy and advantageous for everyone.
