Governor Hill Mansion, 136 State Street, Augusta.
Light breakfast and lunch included.
It's time for the State League's Biennial Convention. That means it's time to take stock of what we've accomplished and look forward to what more we can do. We'll have a chance to elect an exciting new board and make big plans for the two years ahead.
We'll hear from some of Maine's most prominent citizens and thought leaders. We'll also enjoy old friends and new fellowship with thoughtful, forward-looking League members from around the state. Check back here for additional details over the coming weeks. You can read a more detailed agenda below. Invite a friend and/or prospective member to come along.
