SMCLA_Save_The_Date_Aug2016It seems like everyone is having debates this year and SMCLA is no exception! While a good marketer will deliver results regardless of where they are, there are definitely pros and cons to working freelance, at an agency or in-house. Join us on August 23 where the debate will be on with representatives from each “party.” Is the grass always greener on the other side? Or is the devil you know better than the devil you don’t?
