Mentoring Program

Be a Mentor!As we see the economy begin to change, we are finding more and more First-Time Innkeepers entering into the world of Innkeeping. We think that providing an open forum and monthly webinar where these new Innkeepers could meet and learn from experienced Innkeepers would be a great benefit to their learning curve in our ever-changing industry.

If you are an experienced innkeeper that would be interested in being involved in sharing your knowledge in a one-time webinar, or if you'd be willing to commit to watching and helping out on a Facebook Group Forum for new Innkeepers please click below and let us know how you would prefer to be involved in such a Mentoring Program!
