What’s a Maven?
Thanks to our friends at Wikipedia, we bring you this definition of a Maven:
A maven (also mavin) is a trusted expert in a particular field, who seeks to pass knowledge on to others. The word maven comes from the Hebrew, via Yiddish, and means one who understands, based on an accumulation of knowledge.

So our Maine Mavens are people who love Maine and who represent all the best of Maine: honesty, integrity, and earnesty. They may have expertise in one area or another, although I seem to be drawn to others who, like me, have taken a real interest in public relations, marketing and social media.
