The Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce holds the next in its business breakfast series Thursday, July 11, from 7 to 9 a.m. at the Samoset Resort.

Participants will hear from a panel of local and state education leaders about the plan to have 60 percent of Maine's adult workforce hold a post-secondary degree or certificate by 2025. Panelists and attendees will discuss how to accomplish that for residents of the Camden-Rockland Region and the state, what resources are needed to make that happen, and what it means for the regional and state economy.

Panelists will include Cherie Galyean, director of educational initiatives at the Maine Community Foundation; Debra Meehan, director of University College at Rockland; and Tracy Michaud Stutzman, Ph.D., executive director of the Maine Crafts Association.

Pre-registration and pre-payment are required for this event. Admission, which includes breakfast, is $25 for chamber members, and $30 for nonmembers. After Friday, July 7, admission increases to $30 for chamber members and $35 for nonmembers.
