Vision and Purpose
Linda Cotter was the individual who envisioned an organization that would sponsor and host events to educate and engage the people of Central Maine in current global issues. As a result of her efforts the Mid-Maine Global Forum was formed bringing the people of Central Maine and Colby closer together to better understand the world we live in.
Since the very beginning the Forum has successfully brought in dynamic and meaningful speakers to provide an insight into complex global issues that otherwise would not be provided. From Ambassador Dennis Ross, Presidential Special Envoy to the Middle East, to Heather Conley, President of the German Marshall Fund in the United States, to Ambassador Nicholas Burns, Ambassador to China, to Zbigniew Brzezinski, former National Security Advisor, the Forum has hosted internationally renown figures to meet the mission of educating and engaging the people of Central Maine in international issues.
