Meet the Businesses that Help to Make Our Conferences Possible!

Bangor Oct 2013 Logos        Andro Nov 2013 Logos

Despite the technology glitches of the past few weeks that prevented thousands of emails from being delivered, both the Greater Bangor Real Estate, Housing & Land Use Conference and the Greater Andro conference are still ON!  And
you can still get 8 CEUs on either Thursday, Oct 31 in Bangor or Friday, Nov 8 in Lewiston.  (Your registration fee also includes coffee breaks and lunch.)

However, you shouldn’t wait much longer to sign up.  Our space at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor is limited in size, and we won’t be able to handle a lot of unexpected last minute registrations… so hurry and sign up now – by Tuesday, Oct 29 at midnight at the latest! http://bangorhousingshowattendees.eventbrite.com, or call John at 207 713 0674, or me at 207 740 2247.

There’s a little more time to sign up for the Andro conference, but time is running out for that one as well… it’s less than two weeks away!  You can register online at http://androhousingconferenceattendees.eventbrite.com – or of course, you can call John at 207 713 0674 or me at 207 740 2247.

Excitement! On Thursday morning, I was visiting my aunt and uncle in Bangor when I got a call from Clay Gordon, of the Bangor area Channel 7 ABC/Fox network, who wants to interview me sometime next week for his morning show. Cool!  Let’s hope he still has a spot open, since it took me nearly a day and a half to wade through my emails to respond to his written follow up – I’ve offered to be available on Tuesday morning.  (If you’re up thataway, tune in to see how smaht I sound – cross my fingers!)

We have a number of exhibitors who are ready to tell you about their products and services. Check them out, drop your business card in the bucket and maybe you’ll win a door prize!
