About Us

Downeast Business Association is a referral based networking group that is BNI inspired. We have one representative per type of business  in our group, so no two members are in competition. We have done over $300,000 of closed business as a group since our inception.   By joining this group you have a "volunteer sales force" of professionals from a variety of industries who are able to talk knowledgeably about your goods/services. 

We currently have openings in many business categories including: acupuncturist - art gallery - baker - beauty consultant/salon - builder - car mechanic - carpenter - caterer - dog groomer - executive coach - florist - gardener - health club - hotel - jeweler - personal assistant - and many others
