The Marketing Workshop has been postponed until later this summer.

Navigating the social media and marketing world can seem overwhelming and daunting, but we want to help you simplify and streamline your marketing strategies. Having a good marketing plan can quickly grow your programs and increase use of your parks and facilities. 

Join us on later this summer for a one-day workshop at the Little Theater in the W.L.White Auditorium (111 E. 6th Ave) in Emporia to take your marketing efforts to the next level. We are thrilled to have Jana Thomas from Strictly Social Media as our Keynote Speaker. Plus, KRPA members will host a popular 60-in-60 session in the afternoon. Professionals from across the state will share 60 tips or resources for you to take back to your agency to help with your marketing efforts. Lunch will be provided and .3 CEUs offered.
