Small Property Facebook Forum

Small properties can keep the conversation going through our Facebook Forum for small properties with fewer than 50 rooms. The VLA Small Property Forum. This private Facebook group is the perfect place to share information and get connected with your fellow small property operators.


Networking Events

As the only organization in Vermont dedicated solely to the Vermont lodging industry, we would be remiss to not hold at least a few social gatherings. After all, hospitality is what our members are all about.
