Our team of more than 200 volunteers work in each of our eight municipalities to strengthen our communities in so many ways. From scholarships for kids attending post-secondary schools, to summer fun like Westbrook Together Days and the Scarborough Concert Series, to charitable giving – all our partners give back in so many ways. You can make a difference just by identifying your passion and jumping in!
Year after year our staff works to advocate for a stronger regional economy. We fight for economic opportunity for employers and employees through better workforce opportunities and stronger educational outcomes. And we collaborate with everyone who shares a vision of a more prosperous Portland region for all of us. All of that work is also supported by teams of member volunteers who add their expertise and energy to our advocacy for prosperity. It’s just another reason to join the Chamber, and to stay as a member.
Chamber membership pays you back many times over for whatever time you put into it, and even the smallest investment of time can yield tremendous benefits to you, your company and your community. We thank every one of our members who supports the Chamber, and look forward to many others joining us on the road to a better region for us all.
