Contrary to popular belief, your business doesn’t need to be active on every social network. In this session, we’ll review the top social networks, discuss how they work and who’s using them. We’ll talk about which ones are right for your business based on YOUR customers and prioritize their use. You’ll leave with solid information about how to allocate your “social media time” effectively.
New Teacher Reception Opportunities
Time is running out to participate! Many new teachers and staff will join Warren County Public Schools, Randolph-Macon Academy, and other local schools for the 2019-2020 school year. We invite the business community to show support for the educators of our community by helping to make this year’s New Teacher Reception a success. Find out how you can participate here.
