Safety for attendees at Maple Hill Farm Conference Center is paramount. Maple Hill ownership and MARA leaders are committed to current safe practices. We will be monitoring Maine CDC Guidelines for COVID-19 safe practices right up until and during Event check-in, while seated in conference, and for your individually prepared boxed lunches. As of July 15, for COVID, Maple Hill has no special restrictions for attendance numbers from Maine CDC and can accommodate 30 people at Carriage House, our 672 sq. ft. meeting room. MARA has decided to limit attendance to 20 in-person attendees plus the 4 Speakers and the A-V person. This number may be changed based on safety concerns or registration numbers. Carriage House has multiple patio doors, and excellent continuous ventilation for your safety and comfort. Please call or email us with questions.
