MDF and co-op programs ... A call for your help ... Letting an employee go
In today's economic climate, making the most of every marketing dollar is more important than ever before. Marketing development funds and co-op programs can certainly help in this endeavor. In this month's feature article, Dale Taormino, CCI director of professional services, discusses these programs, regulations that apply to them and expenses vs. contra-revenue.
Speaking of these marketing programs, we've included a survey in this month's issue to gauge how companies use them and what issues they may have had running them. Please take a few minutes to give us your insights.
Layoffs are in the news almost every day. But when you must choose which staff member to cut loose, what criteria should you use to make your decision? Find out what our readers have to say about it.
