Insights into the State House 2013
January 29th, 8:30 am – 1:30 pm Welcome Center in the State House, Augusta
Nonprofits have a responsibility to give a voice to their communities, and familiarity with the people & processes of the State House is at the heart of ensuring your voice is heard. Get the knowledge you need to be a good advocate with this interactive day at the State House. First, a panel of former legislators, will share dos and don’ts of communicating with legislators. The panel discussion will be followed by a tour of the State House, led by former Representative Lisa Miller, which will include an orientation to the inner workings of the legislative process. Finally, join us for a light lunch with Senate President, Justin Alfond, who will share his perspectives on the upcoming legislative session.

10th Annual Nonprofit Day at the State House
January 31, 8:00 am – 1:00 pm
Hall of Flags in the State House, Augusta
Thirteen nonprofit exhibitors and the release of the 2013 Partners in Prosperity report will go a long way to build greater understanding of the important contributions of Maine’s nonprofit sector to Maine. If you were not selected to exhibit this year, you can still feel free to drop by, visit your colleagues, and invite your legislators to meet you in the Hall of Flags.
Help show our policy makers and Maine people why nonprofits matter + why we are “Partners in Prosperity!”
