                              From the Executive Director
                              While we Red Sox fans agonized over the team’s performance in April, last month sure was a productive
                              one for your Chamber.

                              We began preliminary work to build a new modernized website. I am convinced that our new format and
                              template will be well received by our members, consumers and visitors seeking information about our
                              communities. We will also be able to access the Chamber website from smart phones.

                              We were invited to serve on Saco’s Economic Development Commission and I attended my first meeting.

  Buy Local is chugging along and we held two important Town Hall meetings to update interested participants on year 1 outcomes and
  to get input on strategies for moving forward with year 2.

  I was asked to serve as a judge for the Maine Family Business Awards by the Institute for Family-Owned Business. Fifteen (15)
  companies are in the running. The award will be presented May 16th.

  We began planning a first ever striped bass fishing tournament. It will be held June 11 and 50% of the proceeds will be dedicated to
  growing the Aaron Drisko Memorial Scholarship Program.

  We continue to benefit from outstanding Business After Hours. The host businesses have been doing a wonderful job and attendance
  is great. Tell your employees, bring a friend and network for both business and friendships. Relationships Matter !!

  Our second annual Ladies Night Out was a huge success. The new venue at Rochambeau Club in Biddeford gave us more space for
  venders and ample parking. Attendance was up and spirits were high. We are already talking about next year. We welcome any
  comments and constructive criticism you may have to help us continue to improve this event.

  We participated in a successful ribbon cutting event for Southern Maine Medical Center at their newly renovated facility on Industrial
  Park Road in Saco. The building remodeling was very tasteful and the workspace was made much more efficient. We were
  impressed and very glad to see our local medical facility providing such great services to our community.

  A second ribbon cutting was held at L.A.W. Calibration at North Dam Mill in Biddeford. While you may not recognize the company
  name, you will recognize the fact that Louis Waterhouse, the company president, has his signature on all the gas pumps in Biddeford-
  Saco certifying proper measurement.

    The Chamber participated in a very interesting meeting that included the Commissioners of Education; Community and Economic
    Development, and a senior advisor to the Governor. Representatives from Pratt-Whitney, the Kittery Shipyard, General Dynamics
    and Arundel Machine Tool Co. attended to discuss workforce and education needs. York County Community College attended and
    hosted the event. Will Armitage of Biddeford-Saco Area Economic Development Corporation organized and facilitated the meeting.
    Richard Freund of the Career Center, Lisa Martin of Maine Manufactures Association, Bob Hardison of the Sanford Regional
                                          Economic Growth Council and me from the Biddeford-Saco Chamber rounded out the group.
                                                                       This is a very important issue and I’m proud to be participating.

How did you get started? I actually am a Registered Nurse and worked in the critical care area for over 18 years. I opened my
own Agency – Ann Harris Agency here in Saco in 2006. I felt that this was another way I was able to help and teach people regarding
their insurance needs on a personal or business level from car, farm, commercial and life.
What training did you have? I have my AA, AS, ADN which is related to both science and business. This allowed me to take my
RN exam with critical care and also my Life, Health, Annuity and Property & Casualty exams.
What skills are essential to your job? In my opinion it is the desire to like people and have customer service skills. Maintaining
continued education is very important to keep up with the current market along with communication skills.
What is a typical day on the job like? Never a dull moment that’s for sure! Each day is different because each person and
business is different. We deal with small quick interactions to more complex situations.
What is your favorite part of the job? Having a person or company thank us for helping them understand what they have or need
and seeing the expression on their face when they are relieved. Also, going out to a farm or business and seeing what they do every
What are the greatest challenges? Trying to explain that something is not right even though it is cheaper! I try to get the person to
realize what they might lose if a loss or tragedy occurs. Also gas prices and trying to deal with modern technology!
What advice would you offer to someone interested in a job in the field? I would love to talk with you as I am hiring! Care about
what you do and you need to like to help people.

As you drive around town keep your eyes open for Buy Local Banners that are being strategically hung at local
businesses. Our plan is to rotate them around the community to different businesses. The banners, complimented
with our holiday and special event posters are sure to bring attention to your businesses.

Don’t forget- if you are planning to run a special or have a sale, please post it on the buy local website with a coupon.

The steering committee is looking for more participation. We have moved the meetings to the 1st Monday of the month
at 5:30pm. We plan to run a tight ship and get right to business so prompt attendance is asked. Remember only you
as local businesses can really make this program work. Our organizations will work hard to promote our area and get
people to come here, the rest is up to you.

Summer is fast approaching we hope everyone has a prosperous season. Good luck to you all. Please feel free to
contact us if you have ideas as to how the Buy Local Campaign can be of help.

                 By Senator Nancy Sullivan

                 Ensuring a safe and secure work place is a top priority for most, if not all, businesses. However, not every business
                 knows where to begin or how to ask for help in creating a safe work environment without fear of an investigation or a
                 hefty fine. This can be more evident in small businesses. To address this concern, the Maine Department of Labor
                 offers a free outreach program called “SafetyWorks!”.
SafetyWorks! is specifically designed to reduce job-related injuries, illnesses and deaths. The program is voluntary and completely
free of charge. It is also important to know that the Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA) cannot issue citations or fines
based on the SafetyWorks! findings.
The program serves as a tremendous asset to Maine businesses, particularly small businesses that may not have the staff or exper-
tise to focus on safety regulations. The SafetyWorks! program can help in the following ways:
•    Answer workplace safety and health questions over the telephone or through the online “Ask the Expert” form;
•    Help a business better understand OSHA regulations;
•    Provide training, publications, and videotapes on safety and health topics;
•    Conduct air or noise monitoring; and
Identify hazards and solutions at the workplace.
More information about SafetyWorks! can be found online at: or by phone at: 1-877-SAFE-345.
According to the Maine Department of Labor, SafetyWorks! trains about 8,000 people and consults at nearly 1,000 worksites in Maine
each year. I would strongly encourage any Maine business to check out the program and take advantage of this valuable free
service. Please feel free to contact me at or (207) 287-1515.

                                                                    officially opened. Mayor Roland Michaud joined SMMC President & CEO

                                                                    Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Craig Pendleton to cut the

                                                        “Our commitment to Saco is growing along with the needs of our commu-
nity,” said McGeachey. “In just the past twelve months, we have added three family practice physicians and two pediatricians.
Saco residents have told us they want more SMMC PrimeCare doctors close to home, and we listened and have responded in a
big way.”
The Saco Health Center at 13 Industrial Park Road is home to SMMC PrimeCare Family Practice, SMMC PrimeCare Pediatrics, as
well as SMMC lab and x-ray services. In addition, several of the physicians with the Saco Health Center offer manipulative
medicine as a complement to their primary care services. The health center offers convenient early morning hours and all SMMC
PrimeCare patients have access to weekend hours in Biddeford.
The demand for physicians in Saco has not only been impacted by the area’s growth, but also by SMMC’s 2009 initiative to ensure
all patients to the hospital’s emergency department have a primary care physician. Using the emergency department for routine
care does not provide the preventative and coordinated ongoing care that healthcare providers know is best for a patient’s overall
wellbeing, and it increases costs for all of us, explained McGeachey.
