What’s Next for Marketing as the Pandemic Ends and Uncertainty Nears?
Wednesday | November 30 | 1 pm ET | Register Now 

Marketing in the components industry has always been a challenge. The balance of ownership across manufacturers, distributors, and reps has often led to a seemingly disjointed effort that’s been difficult to measure success. But as the pandemic redefined what it meant to meet face-to-face and supply chain challenges created a bookings boom, the need for leads lessened for many. Now, new and old marketing tactics alike must adapt to reemerging and unknown challenges as the resolving supply chain crises collides with the specter of market uncertainty.

Join this ECIA and Lectrix discussion to discover what should be included in your 2023 marketing strategies.

Winning the War for Talent - Part 6
Wednesday | December 14 | 3 pm ET | Register Now

ECIA has partnered with the Association Education Alliance to bring you this webinar. The war for talent is escalating. Some organizations are ill-prepared to handle the challenges of an increasingly complex labor market, shackled by the “we’ve always done it this way” mentality. Others are thriving, armed with analytical insights and surrounded by allies, allowing them to snap up highly performing “impact players” and supercharge their growth. What kind of an organization are you? More importantly, what kind do you want to be in the future? Join presenter, Alex Chausovsky of the Miller Resource Group, for this engaging discussion.
