Hot off the Presses - In this release of Acorn News (June 6, 2011)


As of July 1, 2011, the start of our 3rd semester, Acorn University will no longer be free for our HOSTING clients.

Acorn University

HOSTING CLIENTS: We had hoped to be able to continue offering our Acorn University Classes and Recordings for FREE for our HOSTING clients through the end of 2011, but this is no longer possible.

[CLICK HERE] to request an Invoice for a one time fee of $75 to attend any and all our weekly Acorn University webinars and recorded videos beginning July 1 through December 31, 2011. This includes Club 60, the 100, 200, 300, 400 and GEN Series.

If you have questions or concerns about this change in our education program, please E-Mail and she will be happy to schedule a time to talk with you personally.

NON-HOSTING CLIENTS: A one time fee was charged if you are a NON-HOSTING client that desired to attend any and all classes for the calendar year of 2011. If you are a NON-HOSTING client that has already paid the yearly fee, there is NO additional charge to continue attending classes throughout December 31, 2011.


We will continue to provide a small number of recorded videos and webinars intended to address the general innkeeping populous at no charge.

Mentoring Program

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!
