"I am very proud to be a part of this class.  That this group combines both Waldo and Knox Counties, working together on common goals is great.  I've met many individuals whose paths I probably would never have crossed."

Strengthening our Community Leadership Network in Midcoast Maine

"MLA reinforced my burgeoning sense of what a great place Maine is to live, and how existing networks are already in place to help new endeavors and ideas come to light."

"The big eye-opener for me was discovering that the definition of a good leader is different for everyone.  I'm not my definition of a good leader, but for other people, I am.  That was huge for me."

"The opportunity to meet our counterparts in Waldo County was exceptional!  We learned so much about many business sectors, nonprofits & local industries - it really expanded my horizons!"
