Networking group changes name

Maine Successful Thinkers has now incorporated as a Maine nonprofit organization called Think LOCAL! Community Networking. The name was changed to reflect the organization’s commitment to bringing businesses, individuals, and nonprofit organizations together to strengthen communities.

For more than three years, Jeff Ball of South Portland has organized opportunities for local businesspeople to meet and network each month in the greater Portland area, and the group now boasts more 1,000 members. Fueled by dedicated networkers and the fact that membership is free, the group grew to include 10 local weekly meetings that averaged more than 20 regular attendees every time, and its monthly gatherings typically draw more than 100 people.
