About Us

PROPEL fosters the interests and careers of young professionals in southern Maine.

PROPEL is an organization of young professionals seeking to establish themselves in the greater Portland business community by engaging in professional development, building relationships, and making connections. Through our networking events, we bring together people like you: people who care about the local business community and the future of southern Maine.

PROPEL began in 2006 as a collaborative effort between a small group of Portland’s young professionals and the Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce with a mission to cultivate and foster the interests and careers of young professionals in greater Portland. PROPEL, guided by its Board, is now an independently managed affiliate of the Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce.
