MMA Annual Session in Bar Harbor September 6-8

The Maine Medical Association commences this year’s Annual Session on Friday, September 6th with an opening reception at 5:30 p.m. with our exhibitors.

This two-day event continues the time honored tradition of Maine physicians coming together as colleagues to discuss the status of the medical profession, to network, and to engage in the many recreational activities offered including whale watching, hiking, biking, shopping, and golfing. The meeting is family friendly with time to relax and enjoy the many attributes that only Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park can offer. We have a full agenda. You can register online by clicking here.

Features of the program, include Opening Remarks on Friday evening with the Honorable Angus King (invited). The weekend will feature the presentation of 50 year pins to members who graduated from medical school in 1969 and presentation of the Mary Cushman Award for Humanitarian Service, and the President's Award for Distinguished Service. On Saturday morning, MMA will hold its annual governance meeting, which will also include an update from Medical Mutual Insurance Company of Maine and will feature The Honorable Janet T. Mills, Governor of Maine (invited) and her team of health leaders to present the outline of actions addressing Maine's health needs. Sunday morning a panel discussion will feature How Physicians Can Take a Leadership Role. 

A rare event occurs this year: the torch of MMA staff leadership is being passed from Gordon Smith, Esq., who has been the MMA's executive director since 1993, to Andy MacLean, Esq. Don't miss this chance to bid Gordon adieu and welcome Andy to his new role! This will also be the last annual session for General Counsel Peter Michaud, JD, RN, who has served the MMA for five years.

We hope that you will join your colleagues from around the state as well as the MMA staff for an interactive and fun meeting at one of Maine's most beautiful locations at a great time of year!
