Verrill’s Jim Cohen to Moderate Portland Chamber’s “Eggs & Issues” Discussion with Key State Officials regarding COVID-19

On Wednesday April 8, Verrill attorney and Portland Community Chamber of Commerce president James Cohen will moderate the Portland Chamber’s first-ever “virtual” Eggs & Issues on the subject of Maine’s response to the COVID-19 crisis.

For the past 35 years, the Portland Chamber’s monthly business breakfast has been a live event featuring key business and political leaders from around the State. This week, in compliance with State directives to keep people safe through social distancing, the Portland Chamber of Commerce will be holding Eggs & Issues “virtually” over YouTube rather than live. Attendance at the event is free, and registration has already hit record levels. This month’s guests include key state officials and business leaders helping Maine get through one of the most challenging periods in its long history.


  • Dr. Nirav Shah, Director of the Maine Center for Disease Control & Prevention

  • Heather Johnson, Commissioner, Maine Department of Economic and Community Development

  • Dr. Dora Ann Mills, Director of Innovation for Maine Health and former Director of Maine’s CDC

The moderated discussion will be followed by Q&A.
