Home > Membership
Dear BBAV Prospective Member,
As the President of the Bed & Breakfast Association of Virginia, I am pleased to see your interest in our organization. The BBAV is a non-profit trade association serving members statewide in the B&B industry. We invite you to become a member and begin to enjoy the tangible benefits as well as opportunities for networking, education and professional growth.
When we became new innkeepers, we were excited about becoming members of the professional organization of innkeepers here in Virginia. That membership through the years has been very beneficial to us. So, please read over our BBAV materials and if you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call.
We look forward to having you join as one of our new members.
