Module 08: The Direct Marketing Environment: Ethics and Privacy plus a Professional Panel

Module 08 deals with the legislative and ethical environment direct marketers operate in, plus gives participants the opportunity to hear from practicing direct marketers on trends and "how they got to where they are today" during a panel presentation. Guest speakers from select industries provide real-world examples of the applications of direct marketing in their organizations.
