Join The BBAV and B&B Team at The Page House in Norfolk, VA, September 12,13 and 14th. Clarifying questions, such as “How to Run a B&B”, no matter how big or small remains our goal. This weekend class will provide aspiring members the opportunity to observe the Innkeeper at The Page House prepare and serve breakfast as well as “flip” a room! Additional activities include; networking opportunities, guided instructional sessions, presentations and more. Previous attendees have found the workshop to be a priceless preliminary element when it comes to running and maintaining their B&Bs. “very professional and led well,  was exactly what we were looking for and realized that they are the best in the industry”- Lee Ramelle, 2013. ”informative, well organized, wealth of information, shared and pointed out resources for follow up”- Gloria Thomas, 2013.  The deadline to register for the 2014 workshop is September 1st.
