BANGOR, MAINE – December 7, 2016 – Husson University will be hosting the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce's December “Business After Hours” networking event at the Richard E. Dyke Center for Family Business on Thursday, December 8 from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. The event is open to all Chamber members.

In addition to the fabulous food provided by Husson dining services, the event will provide local area Chamber members with the opportunity to make business connections and win door prizes.

“Husson University has the largest college of business in the state. We also offer a wide variety of programs in education, healthcare, pharmacy studies, counseling, criminal justice, science, the humanities, and communication,” says Dean Marie Hansen, Ph.D. “This is a great opportunity to showcase the many educational opportunities we offer to area business leaders interested in personal professional development or enhancing their employees’ skill sets.”  

“Business After Hours” is a popular Chamber event that facilitates networking between business professionals. Each month, the event is held at a different Chamber member’s location. Rotating locations gives Chamber members the opportunity to increase awareness of their services with the regional business community. Holding the events after the close of normal business hours also permits attendees to enjoy themselves in a collegial, casual environment, where they can win door prizes donated by area businesses.

The event will be held at Husson University’s Richard E. Dyke Center for Family Business (CFB). The Center for Family Business is dedicated to supporting and strengthening the 30,000 family-owned businesses in Maine through a variety of seminars and workshops.

The Center includes conference and meeting rooms along with a library and resource room. It is an ideal venue for meetings, conferences, seminars, workshops, or special events.
