Maine SBDC Advisory Board

About the advisory board and its members

Part of Maine SBDC’s longevity and success can be attributed to the advice given by our Advisory Board over the years. The Maine SBDC Advisory Board provides guidance on planning, initiatives and policy matters pertaining to the operation of the program. It provides critical insights to ensure the interests of small businesses are represented by the Maine SBDC. The Advisory Board consists of small business owners and partners who represent groups of entrepreneurs throughout the state.
