The Educate Maine Annual Education Symposium and Leadership Luncheon is a convening of over 350 business, policy, and education leaders who gather to hear from education experts, to learn from one another, and to honor talented Maine educators. The agenda includes a morning plenary followed by interactive workshops on a range of education topics spanning early childhood through adult workforce development.
