In light of the situation with the Coronavirus and recommendations from the recent press conference with Governor Janet Mills, MEREDA has postponed its March 19th Morning Menu breakfast as well as its March 26th Anniversary Gala Event.
Both events will be rescheduled when the CDC lifts its recommendations to postpone all non-essential meetings and functions.
For the time being, all other MEREDA Events are still scheduled as planned, but we will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated on any changes.
Ticket holders should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a refund or credit towards these rescheduled events.

MEREDA is honored and excited to invite its membership to “Breakfast with the Mayor of Portland, Kate Snyder”. A welcomed opportunity to engage in a “Town Hall Meeting” discussion about the role of this leadership position within our community, and discover what we can learn about each other.
Ms. Snyder is thrilled to join MEREDA at this early and formative moment in her 4-year term to ensure she hears what matters most to our membership. Mayor Snyder will be “interviewed” by MEREDA Board Member and Events Committee Chair, Shannon Richards, of Hay Runner.
Make plans to join MEREDA on March 19, 2020 from 7:30 AM – 9:00 AM at the Clarion Hotel in Portland to learn about the City of Portland’s new Mayor, Kate Snyder.
Kate Snyder is the Mayor of Portland, Maine, the largest city in the state. Ms. Snyder also served on the Portland Board of Public Education (2007-2013) where she served two years as Finance Chair and two years as Chair of the Board.

Before the Foundation for Portland Public Schools, Ms. Snyder worked in the private sector for Zylo Media, a Portland, Maine-based digital media startup. She also worked in Augusta during Governor John Baldacci’s administration as the Executive Director for the Board of Corrections.
Ms. Snyder holds a Bachelors’ Degree in Government and French from Skidmore College, a Masters Degree in Public Policy & Management, and a Certificate of Graduate Studies in Applied Research and Evaluation Methods from the University of Southern Maine’s Muskie School of Public Service.
