Leadership Maine

Preparing statewide leaders to shape Maine’s changing economy

Leadership Maine is a powerful, year-long experiential learning journey that expands leaders’ capacity to shape our state’s future. Through the program, leaders:

  • Explore our state’s diverse regions, assets, economies, issues, and people through direct interaction with Maine leaders and Maine places;
  • Develop important and lasting relationships with a diverse community of business, community, government and educational leaders; and
  • Uncover and build upon their personal leadership strengths.

The Leadership Maine curriculum is designed for leaders from all sectors.

In the past two decades, over 1,000 leaders have graduated from the Leadership Maine program. Our alumni are leading the way in creating an economy driven by educated, healthy, innovative and engaged people.
