Magnetize Maine

  • Hilton Garden Inn

We've all seen the statistics: Maine is one of the oldest states in the U.S., and we're only growing older. The Magnetize Maine Summit hopes to change that.

Join FUSION:Bangor as we host the first ever Magnetize Maine Summit to be held at the Bangor Hilton Garden Inn on March 31st, and generate new ways to attract and retain a younger population in Maine.

Attendees will engage with multiple panels of talented and influential movers and shakers from across the business, academic, and nonprofit sectors in Maine. With the support of our partners, the Maine Development Foundation, the Realize Maine Network, Live and Work in Maine, and Maine Accelerates Growth, the ideas generated from the Summit will be summarized in a comprehensive report and made available to the public.

Tickets are $20 per person and can be purchased online. For more information, visit liveandworkinmaine.com/magnetizemaine.

·         Making the most of your service – navigating the boardroom and beyond.

Maybe you already serve on a board and have a lot to contribute to this conversation. Or maybe you’ve hesitated joining a board because you’ve got questions you’d like answered. Maybe you’ve never even considered board service but you’re curious about how they function. No matter your background, we hope you will join us!
