Meeting Minutes

September 2016

The Greater Bangor MMCN hosted the 2015 MMCN Conference
The  Fifth Annual Conference of the Maine Military Community Network was held on May 13th at Wells Commons on the campus of the University of Maine.  There were 231 conference attendees plus 129 attending the evening keynote for a grand total of 360 attendees, 36 providers of services to the military community and 21 presenters.
Dr. Jonathan Shay provided the keynote address with particular focus on the topic of “Combat Trauma and the Trials of Coming Home”.  Four providers of emerging approaches to healing from trauma presented their unique perspectives along with four Veterans who reported their unique experience with their corresponding provider.  The entire day was highlighted by interactions between the Veteran and civilian provider communities.
