Communications Task Force

September 11, 2019

Due to scheduling conflicts and to the proximity of the Commission's two hallmark fall events, the 25th anniversary celebration and the Maine Volunteer Leadership Conference, the September regular meeting was canceled. An attempt was made to move the meeting to Friday, Sept. 20 at 1 p.m. at 19 Elkins Lane, room 103 in Augusta, Maine, but was ultimately canceled due to scheduling conflicts.
