Our General Manager Steve Cummings, CCM, CCE, has once again added the role of Professor to his résumé. Steve is teaching the Private Club Management course at Boston University’s School of Hospitality Administration this fall. If you know Steve, you know that his extensive experience in hospitality paired with his willingness to impart knowledge and help others, make him a great teacher. Have a great semester, Professor Cummings!
