    Our association looks forward to attending the 2018 MARA conference. Would it be possible to provide vendor tables for road maintenance suppliers, companies, contractors, or services in various regions?

    I really like that idea of having vendors there!

    Vendors would probably like that, and I'm sure if our partner BRCA (Belgrade Regional Conservation Alliance) agrees and the MLRC (Maine Lakes Resource Center) does too, it might work. But I try to balance my time between family, work, and volunteering. And right now there isn't a smidgen left over! If anybody out there wants to volunteer, I'd be glad to work with you. 

    Best for the upcoming mud season. 

    MUD SEASON is coming along!

    I'm a new member to MARA and the secretary of the Edgecomb Point Home Owners Association, a small group consisting of 11 lot owners in Washington County. I am very keen to make contact with other members who may be able to advise our group about how to deal with some difficult issues (the association was inactive for about 30 years and efforts to reactivate it have been tough). I also would love to participate in an annual conference, workshop(s) or other gatherings of members with similar interests. Can someone please advise?

    I can find no notice of a 2018 MARA conference on the Alliance website. Has one been scheduled and, if so, where and when will it be?

    Thank you all for your conference requests. I understand it's getting late. I am working with two other people who are busier that even i am! We will have the date and speakers to you within two or three days.

    As for vendors, yes, I will try to do that this year. I will keep you informed.

    Sorry for the delays!

    Betsy

    I'd love to do a table for Maine ROADWays (Residents & Owners on Abandoned & Discontinued Ways) - not selling anything, but just being available to give out information.  But I'm probably one of those people who are busier than you are, Betsy!  I'm tied up weekdays and some weekends from now until mid-August.

    Thanks everyone for an informative and stimulating conference!  Many of our questions were answered, important lessons were learned, and valuable contacts were made. All excellent indicators of a program that was well designed and professionally implemented. I look forward to learning more from the members of this organization.
