Poll: Help Us Re-brand the Chamber!

 


What colors do you think about when you think about our region?
What images do you thinks are uniquely suited for us?
What do you call a region with 16 remarkable communities when you can't list them all in your name?

The Southern Midcoast Maine Chamber (SMMC) needs your help!  We are looking to re-brand our chamber, including our color schemes and logo should the results say we should.  The biggest problem is that the term :"Southern Midcoast" is not a familiar phrase.  Although many locals and some Mainers may be able to guess where the Southern Midcoast region is, many more would get it wrong. When it comes to out-of-state visitors and relocators they have no idea where Southern Midcoast begins and ends, any more than most Mainers would know which communities are included in the the Southern Midcoast of New Jersey or the Southern Midcoast of North Carolina, or Florida, etc. 

If you are familiar with our region, please click on the re-branding survey link here to give us your opinions (and thank you in advance!) 

We Need You!! - Chamber Committees Looking for new members

Chamber committees are vital to the longevity of the Chamber and help to manage the workload of our Executive Director. Committees are a great way to keep you, our members, involved and have a greater say in the Chamber.

Our Committees include:

Ambassadors - The Chamber’s front line for member interaction. We’ve divided the team into three sub-groups of Greeters, Mentors, and Business Engagement.

Finance - The financial overseers of the organization. This group provides the monthly checks and balances over all financial matters of the Chamber. Perform annual reviews of the membership schedule and recommend changes to the Executive Committee.

Government Liaison - The legislative policy arm of the Chamber. Tasked with reviewing and discussing political and policy issues, vetting organizations wanting to address our membership, building relationships with regional politicians, and conducting events during election cycles to get our members connected with candidates.

Keystone Events - Responsible for keeping the planning and execution of the Chamber’s keystone events, like the Hacker's Ball and Chamber Annual Awards, on schedule and appropriately planned, as well as consider other events to add to the Chamber calendar.

Marketing - Tasked with shaping the messaging of the Chamber across all media outlets. Help manage social media, help with a newsletter and announcements, provide guidance and input about a potential Chamber Rebrand and website refresh and assist with or help manage the cleanup of constant contact and other membership records.

If you are interested or have more questions, please reach out to Nick Favreau, Chamber Board Chair, at chairsmmc@gmail.com

2021 Moving Forward Business Survey Results

Over 500 Maine business leaders from 35 industries helped the Maine Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (MACCE), the Maine State Chamber of Commerce and the Maine Tourism Association (MTA) chart the course for 2021 by participating in the 2021 Moving Forward Business Survey.

The six-part comprehensive survey was administered in December 2020 to capture the perspective of business owners heading into 2021. Survey analysis finished two weeks ago and the final 36-page report is being released to Maine Legislators to provide them with the information directly from Maine business owners to help them shape policy and decide how to invest the funds Maine receives through the American Rescue Plan.
