Activities will include increasing awareness about the benefits.

Goal #3: Alignment of Workforce and Economic Development – TCWIB will continue as an active partner with key groups such as Mobilize Eastern Maine (MEM), the chambers of commerce in Local Area 2, professional clubs and business associations.
