opportunities and join us to realize them for
- Networking with other area businesses
Networking at monthly meetings, events sponsored
by the chamber and projects we do is so important to keeping your business
visable, helpful to socialize with other business owners and find out what is
going on in our community.
At our monthly meetings, we go around the room and
each of the 20+ members who regularly attend have 30 seconds to tell the
group about their business and what is new and important. Events are
then published via email to members and posted on our facebook page to
increase the exposure.
What is telling is that before and especially
after our monthly meetings, people stay and talk with each other, discuss
issues and get business done! This makes coming to our meetings a great
opportunity to interact, meet new members, hand out a business card and make
contact with your fellow business owners.
- Member listing on our website
Our website reaches members and communities in
MidCoast Maine and beyond every day. Your listing includes what you do
and how to interact with you via your phone, email, website, Facebook and
Twitter. Your listing may be included in multiple categories to better
reach our customer base.
