Marketing Trainings

Marketing & Communications Training


m&c training logo

Whether you are an entrepreneur, non-profit, or a large corporation, one constant remains – marketing and communications. The success of an organization depends greatly on the overall marketing and communications strategies. 

While striving to promote the development of the region, Region Nine Development Commission (RNDC) and the Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation (SMIF) have identified a need in Southern Minnesota for more marketing/communications training. As a solution to this need, RNDC and SMIF have begun a series of events to provide an opportunity for small businesses, entrepreneurs, non-profits, government agencies, and marketing professionals alike to have access to quality training and networking that is effective, convenient and affordable for participants. 

Southern Minnesota Marketing and Communications trainings will be held monthly throughout the region and cover a variety of topics. By providing free training, attendees will develop the skills to increase the awareness of their product or service and in turn lead to a more vibrant and prosperous region.
