For our next MANAchat, we selected the following topic:
Market Development Fees
MANAchats provide a venue where members meet and exchange knowledge and information with each other on best practices they use to improve their business operations.
When manufacturers with no existing business approach you to represent them, you should negotiate a Market Development Fee to compensate you for the extra time it takes to develop the business. On this MANAchat, participants discuss how to go about doing that.
We scheduled three MANAchats for the week of June 13, 2023. Pick the one that works best for you and register. To keep these MANAchats manageable, we limit participation to no more than 30 members per session. There is no charge to participate if you are a current MANA member. You must be a current member to participate.
