We are happy to announce that the new date for our rescheduled “Spring” Conference is now October 15th!  Join us for The Chamberlain Model: Back to the Future — safely presented in a virtual environment via LiveStream 8:00am – 12:00pm

Maine’s favorite son, Joshua Chamberlain, laid the groundwork for Maine’s future in a speech given in 1876 to celebrate America’s Centennial. His vision resonates in today’s pandemic economy and provides stepping stones for all of us as we work to create Maine’s future.

Featured speakers include: Senator Angus King, USM President Glenn Cummings, Ed.D, and historian Earle G. Shettleworth.

MEREDA’s 35th Anniversary Celebratory Gala Rescheduled Once Again

To our  Valued Members & Supporters, thank you for your continued support of MEREDA!  Now almost a year ago, we were all looking forward to 2020 as a year of celebration marking MEREDA’s 35 years as an advocate for responsible development throughout Maine. We now know that celebration must be further postponed if we expect to celebrate together in person.  Our best guess, as of today, is that we will hold the event in the Fall of 2021.

Sponsors & Event Registrants:  Please be in touch with the MEREDA office if you would prefer that we refund your sponsorship and/or registration dollars. Otherwise, we will apply these to the rescheduled date in 2021.  Erring on the side of caution, we don’t want to hold the event too prematurely, so that we can make sure it remains the premier event it was designed to be!  Thank you for bearing with us as we continue to navigate the many unknowns.
