We have four spots left for DCTC AMA Members to attend the Zenith Digital Marketing Conference on Thursday, April 27 (all day). Six students can get a ride with me up to Duluth in a state van. Two other students can drive on their own, which tends to be the case on these types of trips; some people may want to spend more time in Duluth.
