One of the best parts of a Maine Professional Guides Association membership is networking with your peers. Not only does it provide the opportunity to meet others who share a common interest; it can also spark the beginning of new business relationships. After all, you can never have too many contacts. Neither can MPGA. Our networking activities strengthen coalitions and gathers supporters to help protect guides' interests. This networking is the foundation of our grassroots advocacy program that raised $1.8 million to successfully fight an anti-hunting referendum on bear hunting in 2004.
MPGA works closely with other non-profit associations, small and large landowners, and environmental organizations. MPGA founded the Sportsman/Forest Landowner Alliance in 1992, and recently was a founding member of the Natural Resource Network that consists of organizations that support the sustainable use of Maine's natural resources for forestry, farming, commercial fishing and recreation.
