March 2016 - Karen L. Milliken, CFA, Vice President and Portfolio Manager, was a panelist at the Women in Family Business program discussing the topic:
Challenges and Solutions for the “Sandwich” Generation
The “Sandwich” generation of middle-aged individuals are named as such because they are effectively “sandwiched” between the obligation to care for aging parents – who may be ill, unable to perform various tasks or in need of financial support – and children who require financial, physical or emotional support. The trends of increasing lifespans and having children at an older age have contributed to this phenomenon.
The program provided opportunities for all to share both the challenges and real life examples of how we cope, thrive and make the best of all conditions.
Additional panelists were:
- H. Rebecca Ness, CSA Certified Senior Advisor and Owner of Senior Planning Advisors, LLC
- Colleen McCracken, CEO + Partner, Planet Dog, IFOB Board Chair
- Shauna Miller, TD Bank, IFOB Founding Sponsor and Board Member
Women in Family Business is part of the Institute for Family-Owned Business (IFOB), a non-profit dedicated to supporting family-owned businesses through education and networking so they can pass it on to the next generation.

March 2016 - Karen L. Milliken, CFA, Vice President and Portfolio Manager, completed a program in professional divorce analysis and is now a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst.
Ms. Milliken is trained to provide financial information and assistance for people working through a divorce. She evaluates the tax implications of dividing property and the financial impact of various settlement options for dividing marital property. Karen’s role is to help make sure clients and their lawyers fully understand how the financial decisions they make today may impact their financial future.
Formed in 1993, The Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts (IDFA™) currently has more than 2,000 CDFA professionals across the United States and Canada. The designation is expanding rapidly as more people search for alternative divorce processes, from collaborative to mediation, rather than litigating their case. With the help of a CDFA, clients can reach an agreed equitable settlement by gaining insight into the pros and cons of different settlements over the long term and avoid common pitfalls of divorce.

February 2016 -- R. M. Davis is proud to have once again been the global sponsor of The Camden Conference, held at three venues February 19-21 – live at the Camden Opera House and live-streaming to the Strand Theatre in Rockland, the University of Maine Hutchinson Center in Belfast, and University of Southern Maine Lee Auditorium in Portland.
This year’s topic was “The New Africa.”
Africa is home to the world’s poorest nations but also has a dozen economies that maintained 7% growth rates over the last decade. It is the last major frontier for resource development, while simultaneously struggling with some of the world’s oldest, most corrupt and filthiest oil and mining ventures. While Africa suffers from ethnic and religious violence and poverty, it is blessed with rich and creative cultures and vibrant civil societies. These were only a few of the contradictions and conundrums that framed the 2016 conference, its speakers, and its attendees’ dialogue.
The Camden Conference began in 1987 with a handful of MidCoast Maine residents with insight, enthusiasm and connections to bring the world to Camden. The three-day annual conference takes no partisan or ideological stance and provides a unique opportunity to learn about and explore major issues in world affairs. Next year’s topic, immigration, is certainly going to be highly anticipated.
