At the center of the Realize Maine Network are the affiliated regional groups that are located across the state of Maine. The regional groups within the Realize Maine Network offerings are as diverse and vibrant as the Maine regions they serve. Groups organize events ranging widely from happy hours, foodie gatherings, outdoor excursions and art shows to professional development seminars, political forums and educational luncheons with industry and policy experts. Some groups offer programs to directly connect young people to civic and volunteer opportunities in their communities. Other groups offer programs to support local entrepreneurs and downtown businesses.
While most groups are free to join or have no formal membership structure, other groups offer exclusive membership benefits and charge a small annual fee. Every regional group has a website, Facebook page and/or email list to help keep people informed and engaged.
