Harpswell Maine Business Association News And Events

The HBA Directors have been working with Steve Wallace, the Director of the Southern Midcoast Chamber of Commerce , to see how we can work together to improve business opportunities .He has devised an online survey (that only takes about 2 minutes) to see what  Harpswell business owners have to say. Please join in and take a moment to complete the survey. He  is scheduled to address  the Harpswell Selectboard this Thursday .

The instructions are to go to the Southern Midcoast Maine Chamber website   (See below)  scroll down to the left column  where the “Harpswell Survey” is listed and click “read more” and the survey will come up.  Fill it out and send so it will automatically add into the other completed forms.

 

A great way to market your event , open house , sale or news  for  FREE is to post it on our HBA website and calendar at : www.harpswellmaine.org . Save money, save time, and have more time to enjoy summer!
