The event will take place on Saturday, September 17, 2016 at the University of Maine at Presque Isle.  As the leader of Maine’s largest and most diverse business association, Connors oversees a variety of ventures including economic development initiatives, workforce development initiatives, advocacy efforts and other member services for the business community.


Night with the Stars is an annual gala that allows AAI to showcase and celebrate its Gauvin Scholars, their scholarship awards and achievements.  The gala gives the Scholars a chance to be “stars” for the evening and feel the confidence and support that members of Aroostook County have given them throughout the start of their college careers. The evening also includes recognition to community and business leaders by presenting awards for Business of the Year, Mentor of the Year, and Innovative Educator.
