Bangor Daily News presents:
Dirigo Speaks with Dr. Brien Walton
Wednesday, December 5
In the Atrium
You may already know: Earlier this year, Maine governor Paul LePage designated 32 Opportunity Zones in Maine. Opportunity Zones are a new federal designation made available by the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
But did you know: You'll need to know more to take advantage of Maine's Opportunity Zones?
Dr. Brien Walton, Director of the Dyke Center for Family Business at Husson University, has been a key player in a number of economic development projects in Maine, most notably the recruitment and financing of cross-laminated timber company LignaTerra Global to base their $31 million business in Central Maine.
Dr. Walton will give an introduction to Opportunity Zones and help you identify how you can take advantage of them for your business.
The event is free, but please register to reserve your seat.
Thank you to People's United Bank for sponsoring this Dirigo Speaks on economic development.

“These are our Neighbors”
Thursday, December 6
6:00 - 7:30 PM
Crofutt community room
Come listen and converse with two Bangor residents and immigrants whose remarkable backgrounds and contributions to our community are as impressive as they are divergent. Syrian international rap artist Zac Allaf and Nigerian immigration lawyer and entrepeneur, Angela Okafor, will share their experiences in what promises to be a stimulating evening.
Angela describes herself as a human, a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a friend. She is also an immigration lawyer, entrepreneur, writer, fashion designer and an inspirational public speaker. She arrived in Bangor ten years ago, and, with her dynamic personality and creativity, has taken an active part in contributing to Bangor's growing vitality.
Hip-hop artist Assasi (Zac Allaf) lives in Bangor but hails from Aleppo. Syria’s most ancient city and cultural capital. Like so many young and creative Syrians, during the civil war he landed in Beirut for a few years before hardening borders drove him to India, Nepal, Malaysia, and finally the United States. Hip hop remained Assasi’s anchor through it all. His newest project, “Third World Wide,” reflects this global journey as well as the friends, influences, and lessons Assasi picked up along the way.
Maine Multicultural Community Forums are free, public educational events sponsored by the Maine Multicultural Center. They will enlighten, challenge and provoke participants in support of the Multicultural Center's mission to "welcome and champion diversity as essential to the economic and social vitality of Maine." The views and opinions presented during the Forums are those of the presenters, and do not necessarily reflect the positions of the Maine Multicultural Center.
