When he moved to the area, he discovered the annual Camden Conference.It’s a weekend where speakers from all around the world come to Maine to weigh in on a selected topic.”The theme of this year’s conference is Asia and one of the biggest challenges we have in dealing with Asia is trade.”This year’s conference speakers include correspondents from Time Magazine, along with international ambassadors.Brewster was at the Jesup Memorial Library in Bar Harbor to give local residents a preview of what they’ll talk about.”All I’m going to do is to try to highlight some of the issues that I’ve experienced and try to arouse interest here amongst these people to come to the conference.”An effort that seems to be working as the conference is heading into its twenty fourth year.
