Background:   Maine Development Foundation’s Policy Leaders Academy is a non-partisan educational program for Maine Legislators on the Maine economy. This program has delivered high quality, objective and non-partisan experiential training to legislators since 1985. Program participants learn about:

·         Maine’s dynamic economy, the drivers of long-term growth, and what it takes to achieve job creation.

·         Maine’s regional economies, the interdependence and differences among these regions.

·         How business operates and how investment decisions are made.

·         The impact of public policy decisions on businesses and regional economies.


The result is better-informed decision-making by Maine’s Legislators.
