Maine Bankers Association Meets at Bretton Woods

This year, the 120th Annual Convention of the Maine Bankers Association was held at the Mt. Washington Hotel.  Spectacular weekend and great conference, and Verrill Dana was pleased to be a sponsor.  The keynote speaker was Steve Gilliland, author of “Enjoy the Ride.”  Foreshadowing his speech about enjoying the trip – not just the destination, I was so moved by the view that I pulled over to take this picture from the side of the road.  Thanks again to Pam Green and MBA for putting on another great convention!
