Maine’s Positive Story of the Day ~ Mock Legislative Day, Education Leaders Experience (ELE) ~
The MPA is proud to partner with UNUM, Educate Maine, and UNE Online to offer the ELE Program which is a year long program to bridge education and business worlds. One of the most significant experiences is the Mock Legislative Day.
This day is done in partnership with the County Teachers of the Year, where the 60 educators walk through the bill process: public hearings, work sessions, and a full House Vote.
We are joined by current and former Maine Legislators who serve as mentors, the Maine Speaker of the House, Senate President, and House Clerk to get an idea of what are the primary focus areas of the 131st Legislative Session.
This is one of the most powerful ways to learn how bills are run and passed (or not), and most importantly THEIR VOICE MATTERS!
