The Institute


We are thrilled to kick off our 4th annual Institute in January 2018. The Institute will be held at Think Tank Co-working in Portland, at 533 Congress Street.

Here is a full list of our 2018 Institute Dates:

  • January 13th-14th
  • February 10th-11th
  • March 10th-11th
  • April 14th-15th
  • May 12th-13th
  • June (Date TBD) - 2018 NLC-Maine Fundraiser

Each Institute weekend starts off with a casual breakfast together, which is a great informal time to build relationships with other Fellows. The day that follows is packed with a combination of workshops led by national trainers or leaders from across Maine and panel discussions with local experts in business, politics, advocacy, fundraising, marketing, and other fields. Most days, fellows also have focused time with a small group that will be a consistent support for each other throughout the Institute. Across the five weekends of Institute, Fellows will spend time preparing for work with their mentors, working on and getting feedback on their capstone project, and collectively planning the NLC-Maine Fundraiser. We’ll break mid-day for a potluck lunch. On Saturday evenings of each Institute, we’ll head out to a local bar or other establishment for some more informal time together - often joined by NLC-Maine alumni and board members. Other family and friends are always invited, too!
