Event description

Description

Maine’s labor crunch is never more apparent than in the spring when the state’s $6 billion tourism industry scrambles for workers. Construction and landscaping services ramp up, too. They are finding success in some surprising places.

This event takes place before the library officially opens, so please enter on Elm Street, located across the street from the METRO hub for easy public transportation access. The library's bicycle racks are right by this entrance as well.

Doors open at 7:15 a.m. Program starts at 7:45 a.m. Street parking is free until 9:00 a.m.

Thank you to Coffee By Design, who will serve a complimentary selection of roasts and teas to attendees.

Hosted by Business reporter Peter McGuire.

Allyson Cavaretta, General Manager, Meadowmere Resort

Laura Dolce, Kennebunk Area Chamber of Commerce
