Thanks for sharing this. I look forward to what comes from it. We blocked off some time in April, just in case we decide to visit Nashville for the inaugural gathering.

I suppose its to be a bit more open for the tricky definition people id guess its Pubs with accommodation, inn's, BB's, small hotels, motels, etc - as long as they are independent.

All of us - not corporate owned nor franchised. Greenwood seems to me to be the only "stretch" with B & Bs in 5 places although in the world of chains and corporations, I think would still be "small potatoes".

Is anyone even in PAII anymore or are they all moving over to AIHP? What are the advantages of belonging to one or the other or both?

Haven't been to either really in a long time. They both seem moderately uninterested in the "International" crowd.
