The Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild is 88 members strong and counting. As a professional association of Oregon's individually operated Bed and Breakfast inn, our mission is to assure travelers of consistently high standards in a variety of accommodations.
The annual meeting for the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild is being held on April 6-7, at the Best Western Ponderosa Lodge in beautiful Sisters, Oregon.
Our keynote speaker will be Sue Kirby, "sparkingly upbeat, funny, inspirational, practical and down-to-earth". The topic will be "Celebrate the Ordinary into Extraordinary" and we look forward to her humorous real-life stories to empower us as we prepare for our busy summer season.
We support our members through networking, advocacy and education. Workshops will include information on our Association programs. The Green Certification program of the Guild is designed to make sustainable travel a reality in Oregon. The OBBG blog is written by our innkeepers promoting our inns and our state as a tourist destination and we will provide our members the tools needed for them to become guest bloggers.
A representative from Travel Oregon will present a report on the partnerships between OBBG and the Oregon Tourism Commission (dba Travel Oregon), the Oregon tourism force. We have partnered with Travel Oregon in promotions such as Oregon Bounty, the Central Cascades GeoTourism Project and Oregon 150
We look forward to seeing our members at the 2009 Annual meeting of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild.
