January 13 Workshop Targets Potential Applicants for the Alexandria Marketing Fund

The workshop is part of the Marketing Committee’s outreach to potential applicants for the Alexandria Marketing Fund, a program administered by the Marketing Committee. The goal of the Alexandria Marketing Fund, reinvigorated in October 2007 by the Alexandria City Council, is to foster public/private partnerships that promote the City as a destination for visiting, shopping, dining, and doing business. City Council appropriates monies for the fund on an annual basis and the Marketing Committee reviews and approves applications for funding. The next application deadline will be in March 2009.
The purpose of the Marketing Committee and the Marketing Coordinating Council is to foster public/private cooperation and coordination among multiple businesses and organizations to promote Alexandria as a destination for visiting, shopping, dining and doing business; to leverage public dollars with private investment; and to bring increased revenues to the City of Alexandria.
There is no charge for the workshop. For more information or to RSVP, contact Andrea Blackford at 703.519.3489 or at email@example.com. Please specify whether you wish to attend the morning or evening workshop.
