AUGUSTA, Maine — The Maine Business Leadership Network is offering the second of several regional employer forums focused on the benefits to businesses in hiring people with disabilities, part of Maine’s untapped workforce. The forum will be held 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 19, 2013, where it will be hosted at University of Maine Augusta in Bangor. The first forum, held on June 5 in Presque Isle, was a huge success.

The Maine Business Leadership Network, in partnership with the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, is a state affiliate of the United States Business Leadership Network, and offers member employers resources for recruiting candidates with disabilities, information on disability issues and topics, recognition for best disability employment practices, and exposure to an untapped market for their goods and services.
