2024 MACDL Annual Conference

Thursday, June 6, 2024

Hilton Garden Inn

(5 Park Street, Freeport)

(Head's up: We're NOT at the Harraseeket! this year!!)

Please join MACDL in Freeport on June 6th for our annual conference--this year, it's a one-day only event!

The program offers 6 excellent total CLE credits (approved by the BBO/MCILS), including one live H&D credit.

Registration covers the 6 CLE credits, breakfast, lunch, snacks . . . and a post-CLE evening event at Maine Beer Company, that includes beer (shocking!) and pizza and more.

It's going to be a fun and educational day, for sure!
