DLI Prepares for November Online Sessions

Programs to focus on route growth and team efficiency

LAUREL, Md. — Continuing education and training are key to maintaining momentum and building profitability in a business. To facilitate this for dry cleaners, the Drycleaning & Laundry Institute (DLI) is continuing to offer webinars, as well as networking opportunities, for its members.

“Since its founding, DLI has existed to help member dry cleaners communicate, learn, and grow together,” said Mary Scalco, DLI’s CEO. “We strive to return a higher value than the cost of membership in everything we do at DLI. This month’s educational offerings target specific areas of concern for members. By addressing these topics and providing open communications channels for all members we are helping industry professionals connect and succeed. Our doors are open. I welcome every industry professional who is not a member to join DLI and enjoy the benefits of membership.”

The following webinars and virtual training opportunities will be held in November 2021. All programs go live at 1 p.m. EST:
