There is no greater source of inspiration than to be with other people who understand your challenges and opportunities. You can't afford not to join.

Credibility. A Quality Assured logo next to your B&B name conveys professionalism and best practices. Members receive a window cling "Proud Member of PABBI" that includes the quality assured logo. The PABBIQuality Assured Logo Quality Certification assures that your property has been inspected and meets all safety, cleanliness, and quality standards set forth by PABBI and the industry. Traveler reviews are checked by a quality review committee periodically and re-inspection occurs every three years.

Advocacy: We have your back. PABBI works to ensure that there are no laws passed that would be detrimental to the growth of your small business. Every year, PABBI tracks a number of bills at both the State and Federal level that may have an impact on small businesses. When needed PABBI supports and/or writes letters to state and congressional leadership about the financial need and liability protections for Bed and Breakfasts. PABBI is a participating member of the PA Restaurant & Lodging Association and the Tourism Coalition. The Tourism Coalition meets quarterly and brings together regional and state leaders within PA's hospitality industry to discuss advocacy initiatives, funding, and marketing of PA's tourism assets.
