This business is honored at the event by the Chamber Board of Directors, business owners, community members and dignitaries, and also receives a free promotional package from the Chamber.

Junior Chamber for Emerging Leaders:
Piscataquis County has no future without our youth – they will be our future business owners, civic leaders, and entrepreneurs. They are the key to our forward movement. As a chamber, we have developed a program which connects high school students with business owners who are successful in the fields these students want to pursue. Through internships, mentoring, and training, our current chamber members work with these students as an investment in our future, while demonstrating to each young person that they matter; we care for them, we want them to stay and build a successful life here, which is more than possible, but likely. Interested students can easily join the program by emailing the director HERE.
Workforce remains one of the County's greatest challenges. Finding qualified employees to fill key positions is a tremendous need for every employer in Piscataquis. As an added benefit to membership, you’ll have the ability to log in to the member portal and post available positions through an enhanced listing on our site. The chamber will, in turn, promote those positions through social media and verbal referrals until each position is filled.
