Each Spring AmeriCorps members from all across the state gather for the annual AmeriCorps Member Conference.
This conference is a “For member – By member” conference where members:
- design and organize the event,
- have the unique opportunity to present to other AmeriCorps members,
- learn from their AmeriCorps peers, and
- network with other members serving in different places and with different programs in Maine.
"Coming Together to Make Maine Better" - looking back at the 2021 member conference
"Coming Together to Make Maine Better,” the 2021 Maine AmeriCorps Member Conference took place Wed. March 31, 2021.
The theme, “Coming Together to Make Maine Better,” represents the comradeship between members and their efforts to help Maine overcome the challenges presented to each of us this past year. With this year’s conference being online, AmeriCorps members strived to recreate the same inspiring and engaging event in a virtual setting.
The conference featured recorded video greetings from all four members of Maine’s congressional delegation. Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows delivered the 2021 keynote address and took questions from members on civic topics, such as the role of service, diversity initiatives, the democratic process and voter eligibility.
Volunteer Maine would like to thank all those involved in making the 2021 Maine AmeriCorps Member Conference a success!
Special thank you to Bangor Savings Bank for their support of AmeriCorps member development in Maine.
