Representatives of the Maine Principals Association also attended the meeting to go over changes for the upcoming season and also to answer questions from the Athletic Directors. This is an annual trip north for the MPA representatives as they travel the State to hear concerns and issues that might arise and to answer questions from the Athletic Directors.
(Mike Burnham:"To come to Aroostook County and meet with the folks and hear their concerns. Talk about the changes that have been implemented at the State level that impact the schools up here. I think that kind of communication and that opportunity to be north and hear them and for them to ask us questions is key.
(Mike Bisson):" We try to travel around the State and get to the eight conferences and leagues and meet with the Athletic Directors. We can go through any changes for this year it is a great opportunity for us to get out and about see all the new faces and for them to get to know us."
