Mission and History

To promote and advance a vital, healthy business environment.

The Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce was established in 1911. It is currently one of the largest chambers in the State, offering a range of programs to its members and the public.

Our program of work includes business development, as well as advocacy efforts and community betterment programs. We provide direct programs to our members including trade shows, seminars, networking opportunities and leadership development. Our healthy worksite initiative has been extremely successful - in the spring of 2006 we were recognized as this nation's first "Well Region."

As one of the State's oldest Chambers we work to ensure we remain relevant to the needs of our members and our region. The Chamber is truly a regional chamber representing businesses from our 21 communities: Bangor, Bradley, Brewer, Carmel, Dedham, Eddington, Glenburn, Hampden, Hermon, Holden, Hudson, Kenduskeag, Levant, Milford, Newburgh, Old Town, Orono, Orrington, Penobscot Nation, Veazie and Winterport. If you are new to our region, please make use of our relocation tools and services. All of our towns and cities are distinctive in their appeal, offering families a range of community types, all with an outstanding quality of life.

This Chamber is the voice of the business community working each day to promote a favorable business environment and a high quality of life. You will find a number of useful links to key organizations within our region. We hope you find them useful. Our goal is to help you build your business.
