    MLA Annual Meeting:

    Development for Libraries with No Development Staff

    Topsham Public Library

    May 10, 2019 at 10am

    Most of the libraries in Maine don't have a dedicated development person on staff. Join us for a panel discussion on ways you and your staff can fit development activities into your already busy jobs, and get more specific help during breakout sessions with our panelists. Then chat with colleagues during lunch and stay for the business meeting in the afternoon.


    10:00am Check-In & Mingle

    10:30am - 12:30pm Panel discussion and Breakout Sessions

    Panelists will include:
    Joyce Fehl, Director of Development and Marketing at Curtis Memorial Library

    Dave Mosley, Development Coordinator at Topsham Public Library
    Hannah Young, Director of Development and Marketing at Bangor Public Library
