Social Media and Internet Marketing courses are now being offered at the Tamaqua Lehigh Carbon Community College Morgan Center. The low-cost classes are hosted by the Tamaqua LCCC Morgan Center and presented by the Tamaqua Chamber of Commerce.

Lehigh Carbon Community College's Morgan Center has become the first to offer cutting edge curriculum in Social Media Marketing. The Internet reaches over 300 million Americans every day. Social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are now the number one online activity. In these courses, marketers, entrepreneurs and other professionals will have the opportunity to learn how to harness the power of social media by cultivating the customer experience, empowering business to thrive in an ever-changing world.

"This material is on the forefront of where business is going.", said Conrad Flynn, Managing Director of Concur New Media, who will also be leading instruction. "It was during my previous10-year career in radio that I really saw this shift taking place up-close. It's amazing to bring the power of this back home to local business." "Major developments in the business world like this one are sometimes slow to reach our area, which is why we're especially proud to say we are the first in the nation to offer this curriculum", said Maureen Donovan, Assistant Director of Workforce and Community Services for LCCC.
