VIA MARKETING & SALES ACADEMY
Marketing Your Business Shouldn’t Be Your Biggest Challenge!
Position yourself as the go-to expert and trusted advisor.
What worked in the past doesn’t necessarily produce results today. Top performing companies know this and are focused on defining and understanding their ideal customer or client, then providing them with precisely what they need, when they want it. It’s never been easier to get in front of people ready, willing, and able to buy what you sell.
VIA’s innovative, high-impact 8-week academy starting September 6, 2019, introduces you to a 4-step formula combined with User-Intent Marketing to increase sales. Presenters are recognized industry experts ready to teach the skills to move your business forward faster.
Member After July 31, 2019 – $299

VIA LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
The Valley Industry Association has created an SCV Leadership Program to assist in satisfying the goal of preparing the next generation of VIA Committee Chairs and Board members with the ultimate goal of creating a continuing pathway to successor development for the organization and the business community as a whole.
The program fully acquaints participants with the work of the Valley Industry Association (projects, committees, programs, events, goals, and objectives) and the steps toward leadership roles (Committees, Board of Directors, Executive Board, Chairmanship).
Guest speakers discuss various aspects of leadership (i.e., The Importance of Vision, Local State & Federal Players, Leadership Ethics, Political Acuity, Communicating as a Leader, and much more….). Participants are provided recommended reading, homework, and team projects related to the topics.
Program participants will advance their business acumen while establishing valuable relationships with key community contacts and leaders (i.e. VIA Board, Educators, Elected Officials, Economic Development Corporation, SCV Chamber and Latino Chamber Leaders and others).
