Let's Chat About Workforce Successes & Solutions with the MTA & BBRC 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM MTI Classroom, 8 Venture Avenue , Brunswick

Let's Talk About Workforce, 10AM to 11AM*
(* We will stay after to answer specific questions)

Come join the Maine Tourism Association and the Bath-Brunswick Regional Chamber for a thought-provoking discussion of workforce issues in our region.  This is a great opportunity for business leaders to come together and address the challenges and opportunities facing our local workforce. Topics of discussion will include opportunities available to connect with students at local high schools, grant funding available to develop your employees, ways businesses can improve recruiting and retention in this tight labor market, and more. Don't miss this chance to be a part of the conversation and make a positive impact on the future of our region!

This is part of a five-part series MTA is doing around the state, and since our chamber has been working with the MTA on several different workforce programs over the past six months, they asked if we wanted to co-host the one session in our region, and we were thrilled to accept.

Additional information

The Let’s Chat About Workforce Successes & Solutions discussion is happening January 24th from 10AM to 11AM in the MTI Classroom, at 8 Venture Avenue, in Brunswick (MTI stands for Maine Technology Institute for those using GPS).  This event will be two things- first, a discussion where we hear from you about your successes and challenges   The second part is larger and will be the MTA and our Chamber giving you updates on the multiple projects and programs we’re launching in the 1st quarter of this year and how you can be a part of them. 

Beyond that, we want your good ideas too.  If you have a best practice, be it something as small as a new question on your applications which has been effective, or a new job posting site that you’ve seen better returns on then others, then let us know.  Maybe your business has experience with Open Book Management or uses billing software that streamlines some workflows so you’re employees can have more productive hours- whatever it is, let’s talk about it. 

Two things to keep in mind. 
First, Kathryn (from MTA) and Cory (BBRC) are both willing to stay past 11AM to discuss this with whoever wants, but we didn’t want people to have to commit more time than they could thus we are promoting it as an hour. 
Secondly, please show up in person.  We may stream this session, or record it, but there is a cohesion that comes from group discussions like these, including valuable follow-ups in the parking lot, that you should really be in-person for.
