Frequently Asked Questions – 2019

This information can be printed for offline reference.


Is there a discount for MLTN members?

This year there will be just one price for registration – $75. We are making this change in the interest of simplicity, and because we want non-land trust people to feel equally welcome at the event. We offer scholarships to students with a Maine connection whose studies include an environmental, nonprofit management, or sustainability focus. If you wish to attend the conference but find the registration fee out of reach, please contact Donna (gro.t1566653587hcm@t1566653587tessi1566653587bd1566653587). We will make every effort to work with you so that you can attend.

Where can I stay while I’m in town for the conference?

We have arranged for discounted rooms at three Brunswick establishments. See the link for Lodging on the Conference web page: https://www.mltn.org/meetings/conservation-conference.php

Can I pay for my registration with a check?

Yes, we are happy to take payment by check until April 1st. Checks should be made out and mailed to: MCHT, 1 Bowdoin Mill Island, Suite 201, Topsham, ME 04086. After 4/1, payment must be made by credit card. Call us at 207-729-7366 to provide payment by credit card over the phone.

My plans have changed unexpectedly. Can I cancel and get a refund?

Will Friday Field Courses take place in the event of inclement weather?
