This is a twice-a-year, participant-led gathering. The Organizing Committee (the OC) maintains a framework for the weekend, but not the content. Each participant brings his talents, his interests and concerns into the framework to keep that content rich and fresh. We are all co-creating this weekend together. Whether we are offering a workshop, attending one, or just de-compressing, we are MMG. MMG started in 1989 as a spin-off of Mainely Men, a semi-annual gathering in Maine that couldn’t accommodate all the out-of-staters who wished to attend.
