Participants come together one day a month for six months to learn from local industry experts, engage in roundtable discussion for practical advice and best practices, and develop their own personal marketing plan. The Academy runs twice per year with classes beginning in January and July. Classes are held on the last Wednesday of the month (excluding December).


Day one of the January – June 2019 program will held on January 30, 2019 and will focus on “Essential Marketing Plan Ingredients.” Learn the steps and components of creating (or updating) a marketing plan. From a panel of marketing professionals representing small, medium and large companies in our region, participants will develop a clear understanding of the fundamentals required in an effective plan. From situation analysis to market identification, hear how the experts mapped their plans down to the details.
