BANGOR — The Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce will kick off their season of “Hot Stove” sessions 8-10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 16. “Hot Stove” provides Chamber members with the opportunity to engage with leaders including municipal, legislative and congressional officials about the issues impacting our region and state.
The Chamber will present their “Issues of Impact” for 2018. “Our Governmental Affairs Committee and Board of Directors prepares this document to drive and direct our advocacy efforts in the coming year. We focus on issues that impact our members and region. Areas of focus include healthcare, transportation, R&D, taxes and social impact,” according to Deb Neuman, President of the Bangor Region Chamber.
The event will be held at Rangeley Hall on the campus of Eastern Maine Community College in Bangor. President Dr. Lisa Larson will offer a welcome and share some remarks about what is happening at the college.
“We are also hoping to engage with legislators who represent the 21 communities served by the Bangor Region Chamber to hear about their priorities for the upcoming legislative session and for them to hear from our members about what is of concern and interest to them,” Neuman said.
The event is sponsored by Quirk and runs from 8:00 – 10:00 am, Saturday December 16. “Hot Stove” is held once a month on the third Saturday of the month through May. Future meetings are scheduled for January 20, February 17, March 17 and April 14.
