By the end of this eCourse, you will have:
- - Strategies for navigating issues in programming, including space, budget, and staff constraints
- - Ideas for adult programs that could fill a full calendar year
- - One detailed program completely designed and ready to implement
- - Tips for marketing your events through social media
