This course has been approved for 4.00 Broker, 4.00 Legal, and 4.00 Architect Continuing Education Credits.

MEREDA's Signature Event, sponsored by TD Bank, will be held on Thursday, January 26, 2012 from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM at the Holiday Inn By the Bay, 88 Spring Street, Portland, ME.

MEREDA's Annual Real Estate Forecast Conference is a unique forum specifically geared toward developers, brokers, architects, bankers, attorneys, accountants and other industry professionals.

MEREDA has assembled some of Maine's top real estate leaders to provide the annual Economic Overview and Outlook on Maine's economy, along with the popular Market Overview by property type focusing on both Commercial and Residential Forecasts. Charles S. Colgan, Professor of Public Policy and Management at Edmund S. Muskie School of Public Service at the University of Southern Maine will join us to provide his outlook on Maine’s economy, and Maine’s Governor, Paul LePage has accepted our invitation to provide the Welcome Address. Attendees will gain valuable insights on the state of the economy and what lies ahead in the coming months for the real estate industry.

Topics to be covered include: An examination of current State statistics and what they reveal about the future of Maine's economy with an emphasis on real estate and a Market Overview by property type focusing on both Commercial and Residential Sectors.

Supplementing the conference will be MEREDA's Eighth Annual Member Showcase with MEREDA Members exhibiting their products and services in front of the "who's who" in commercial real estate. We anticipate approximately 500 will attend the Annual Forecast Conference again this year and MEREDA's Member Showcase offers an excellent opportunity for Members to network and market their products and services.
