This year marks the 10th annual MMA Silent Auction, held during the MMA Annual Session, taking place the weekend of September 6-8. All proceeds from the auction directly benefit the Maine Medical Education Trust which provides scholarships to Maine students pursuing a degree in medicine. The stated amount of your donation can be used as a tax deduction as the MMET is a non-profit organization.

Donated items include both new and gently used items such as paintings and other art work, pottery and other items from local artisans, gift certificates to local restaurants or events, wood crafts and small furniture items, and gift baskets. Your contribution will greatly help us meet the increasing demands for financial assistance by Maine’s future medical providers and meet the needs of our members who look to the MMA to provide quality CME programs.

Features of the Annual Session this year include a panel on Saturday with The Honorable Janet T.
