Fostering Excellence in Professionalism, Ethics, Civility, and Legal Skills


Effective and consistent administration is the key to a successful Inn. A strong foundation in administrative procedures ensures a smooth transition and operational stability from one year to the next as Inn leadership changes.  Well-developed administrative procedures allow Inn leaders the flexibility to focus on creating a valuable Inn experience for members.
