In fact, we are hosting a couple of sessions on October 20. Starting at 9:00 AM, enjoy a presentation by Greg, Jenna, and Adam discussing why marketing is important and tips for getting you started.

Then, starting at 10:30 AM we are hosting a panel with other people involved with local businesses to discuss what has and hasn't worked for them when it comes to marketing. There will even be a Q & A aspect if you have a specific situation you want help with.
