Fall Conference – Oct. 25-26, 2018

Maine Public Education

The 45th Annual MSMA Fall Conference will be held on Thursday and Friday, October 25 and 26, 2018, at the Augusta Civic Center (Augusta, Maine). The two-day program features speakers, product and service vendors, over 50 clinics on a variety of educational topics, and a reception.

This is a great opportunity to connect with an array of school leaders looking for the latest education practices, products, publications, technologies, and services for use in their buildings, board meetings, classrooms, and offices. This one of a kind event…the largest statewide gathering of public education leaders in Maine, attracts over 800 registrants annually!

The keynote this year is Jamie Vollmer:

Jamie is an award-winning champion of public education. He is president of Vollmer, Inc., a public education advocacy firm working to halt the erosion of public trust and build support for America’s public schools.

He is the creator and producer of the ground-breaking video series, The Great Conversation. He is also the author of the highly acclaimed book, Schools Cannot Do It Alone, proclaimed by the American School Board Journal as one of the “top ten books of the year.” He has been named a Friend of Public Education in both Texas and Ohio. He received the Learning and Liberty award from the National School Public Relations Association for his efforts to strengthen school/community partnerships. Jamie has served on the boards of the National PTA and the North Central Regional Educational Laboratory.

Jamie holds a Juris Doctor from The Catholic University in Washington, D.C. He received his B.A. in political science from Penn State University. A native of Philadelphia, he is married to his college sweetheart, the former baton twirling majorette, Jeanne Hecker. They have three grown children, all gainfully employed.
