PROPEL is an organization of young professionals seeking to establish themselves in the southern Maine business community by engaging in professional development, building relationships and connecting with each other. Through our networking events we bring together people like you – people who care about the local businesses community and the future of southern Maine.
PROPEL began in 2006 as a collaborative effort between a small group of Portland’s young professionals and the Portland Regional Chamber. The mission was to cultivate and foster the interests and careers of young professionals in Greater Portland. PROPEL, guided by its board, is now an independently managed branch of the Portland Regional Chamber.
