Nonprofit Policy Caucus

The New Political Landscape: What We Need to Know

Join us for our annual Policy Caucus and get the latest information about changes in the political make-up of our government. With its timing just following the elections, the Caucus will bring nonprofit leaders together with political analysts to explore the new political landscape. Take part in conversation that will guide you in responding to policy proposals, adapting to changes in government, and educating policy makers on the vast importance of New Hampshire’s nonprofit sector.

Join us on December 11. Your voice is needed!
