Matt Lehrman

Featured Speaker: Matt Lehrman

Matt Lehrman is a nationally recognized expert on public engagement, organizational collaboration and how to turn conflict into results. He will incorporate the current public health emergency – a stressor, if ever there was one – into his practical approach to problem solving. Hailing from Arizona, Matt has offered several presentations and workshops for the Maine Arts Commission and the Maine Association of Nonprofits. He will be available after his address for scheduled, individual consultations with municipal leaders.

Kristy Senatori

Featured Speaker: Kristy Senatori

Kristy Senatori is the Executive Director of the Cape Cod Commission, where she leads a process of designing innovative land-use and economic development policies that spans municipal borders. She will speak about the “One Cape Cod” approach in Massachusetts. A law school graduate, Kristy worked in the private sector for several years before joining the Cape Cod Commission in 2008.

Liam Riordan

Featured Speaker: Liam Riordan

Liam Riordan is a professor at the University of Maine in Orono, where he specializes in Early American history. No surprise – he will speak to convention attendees about the 2020 Maine Bicentennial. More specifically, Dr. Riordan will explain the political events and undercurrents in the United States before and during 1820, which led to the birth of our great state.

Jeanne Lambrew

Featured Speaker: Jeanne Lambrew

What a “welcome home.” Jeanne Lambrew, who grew up in Cape Elizabeth and became commissioner of the state’s sprawling Department of Health & Human Services in 2019, was thrown into the deep end of the coronavirus pool one year later. Zoom into this session for 90 minutes as she updates municipal leaders about Maine’s effort to combat COVID-19, the Keep ME Healthy program, local General Assistance, her deep experience in Washington, D.C. – and more. And have your questions ready.
