Marketing Workshops Popular in
Members of the South Central Business Development
Association (SCBDA) had their pulse on the communityís
interest in business education when they recruited for a
marketing workshop series. The series was held March 18
and 25 at SCBDA member Dorothy Harrisís business, The
Gathering Place in Holdrege.
REAP Business Specialists Phil Menke and Monica Braun
instructed the workshops. Between 15 and 20 enrollees
heard a primer on the four Pís of marketing: product,
price, place, and promotion. Lively discussion of
individual marketing issues followed.
The networking was a positive learning experience for
the group. The $15 registration fee also allowed
attendees the option of becoming SCBDA members.
