WORKSHOP DETAILS: October 20, 10 AM - 4 PM


It’s safe to say that 2020 was a year like no other and that 2021 has certainly not reverted back to normal. So, as we Main Streeters think about building our organizations during this year and beyond, what should we take away from the pandemic? What can we do to help our communities continue to grow? And how are promotions being redefined in the age of Covid-19? Bridgette will share her breadth of knowledge of promotions and how to diversify to build a stronger organization for whatever the future brings.
