What We Do

MeBIC, the Maine state chapter of the American Business Immigration Coalition (ABIC),  is Maine’s only resource dedicated to providing information, education and advocacy on immigration and related issues from the business and economic perspective.

    • Advocates for initiatives, laws and policies that welcome immigrants and facilitate their ability to reach their full potential in Maine as workers, entrepreneurs, consumers, and citizens.
    • Partners with Maine’s business community to understand their labor needs and what resources would help them successfully engage Maine’s immigrants in their workforce.
    • Informs businesses and economic leaders in Maine about how federal, state and local policies, laws, and actions affect our ability to attract, retain, and integrate immigrants into Maine’s workforce.
    • Collaborates with private and public partners in Maine and nationally to support best practices that foster immigrant integration into Maine’s workforce, economy and society.
