Each December Educate Maine convenes hundreds of educators, business leaders, policymakers, and diverse citizens from across our state's communities at our annual Education Symposium. After two years of virtual engagement, we are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to the Holiday Inn by the Bay for a full day of in-person learning, networking, and engagement.
