“We are pleased to offer this opportunity to the local business community,” Star-News publisher Michele Gerlach said. “Digital marketing is a concept that overwhelms many of us. Mike Blinder is an expert.”
The event is set for 11:30 a.m. in the new Andalusia Area Chamber of Commerce office on River Falls Street.
“We ask that anyone interested in attending pre-register, so we’ll know how many lunches to prepare,” Gerlach said.
In addition to lunch, The Star-News is providing copies of Blinder’s book to those who attend who are interested.
