On March 11, at the Heffernan Center of Saint Joseph’s College in Standish, the newly formed “Lakes Region Delegation” of state legislators will gather to listen to business owners from the region.
This event will go from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday. The goal of the forum, which is being presented by the Sebago Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce, is to foster dialogue between legislators and business owners, Aimee Senatore, Executive Director of the SLRCC, said.
“This event is free and open to the public;is free and open to the public, however, we are hoping to attract a good number of local business owners and professionals. Those that attend will have an opportunity to meet one-on-one with their local representatives and also take part in a Discussion Forum.
We encourage people from businesses of all sizes to attend and share their experiences,” Senatore said. “Recent referendums like Question 2 and new state building codes are going to have a significant impact on small business in the region. This forum presents an opportunity for the community to ask questions and talk about innovative ideas and possible solutions to existing (and future) challenges.”
The Chamber’s goal is to advocate for the business community by providing this opportunity to connect with policy makers, according to Senatore. Attendees will have one-on-one access to their legislators from 10 to10:30 a.m. during an opening meet and greet with a facilitated discussion period to follow.
The event is sponsored by Saint Joseph’s College, who has provided the use of their brand
new venue, Baggot Street Café, located within the Heffernan Center.
RSVPs are encouraged because space in the Café is limited. If you would like to attend, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org by March 10. For more details on this event, including a list of representatives scheduled to attend, please follow the event on the
