2013 Business Excellence Awards

Presented by: NH Business Review

Did you know that small businesses make up more than 80 percent of the New Hampshire business community?

They are the heart of the Granite State's economy, but the people who own and operate them are often overlooked and don't receive the kind of public recognition they deserve.

Recognizing the state's small-business owners and operators is the purpose of NHBR's Business Excellence Awards -- they are a celebration of those small-business people whose imagination, industriousness and innovation have not only helped their companies to grow and thrive, but to give back as well -- to their communities and the entire state.

Date: Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm

How to Take Advantage of Mobile Computing…

to Boost Productivity Without Exposing Your Company to Security Breaches, Damaging Litigation, and Rogue (Or Careless) Employees

Presented by: Jenaly Technology Group Merged

Who Should Attend:

CEOs and Executives who are already allowing employees to access company e-mail, files and applications via mobile devices or who are considering it. This seminar will also be highly relevant to Executives facing a network upgrade, expansion or refresh within the next 6 months who want to know their options for cloud and mobile computing.

During this seminar you will learn:

  • Cloud and mobile computing 101: What it is, how it works and the pros and cons of integrating cloud and mobile devices for your organization. We'll answer the most commonly asked questions in simple terms (not “geek-speak”) about cloud and mobile computing, including cost saving strategies, security policies and protections you must have in place. If you’re planning on upgrading or refreshing your computer network within the next 6 months, you’ll find this to be invaluable information to have.
  • 5 critical policies, procedures and protections EVERY business must have in place NOW before allowing employees to use mobile devices to access the company network; overlook even one an you’re exposing yourself to security breaches, damaging and expensive litigation, employment lawsuits and having confidential company information exposed to competitors, hackers and cyber criminals.
  • iPads, laptops, tablets, Oh my! What are the BEST mobile devices for working remote? We’ll discuss pros and cons of the various devices and operating systems, what the limitations are of each and discuss how to properly plan your next network upgrade to take advantage of the latest mobile and cloud technologies without exposing yourself to more costs and risks.
  • Legal issues introduced with mobile computing, and how to reduce or eliminate your risk. We’ll answer questions such as: What should you do if a device is lost or stolen? When, and under what circumstances, are you legally required to notify clients that their data has been compromised? What rights do you as an employer have to personal mobile devices after an employee leaves? Can you legally monitor their devices? Should you allow employees to use personal phones and devices, and what risk does that expose you to? What state laws directly affect you? You’ll also learn about shocking new HR laws that you are unknowingly violating by simply giving your employees access to company e-mail on their personal mobile device.

You Had Me at Hello: Building Donor Loyalty

Presented by: Third Sector New England

Fundraising succeeds on knowing our donors well.  While it’s easy to talk about building and strengthening relationships with our donors, it’s not easy to balance the many competing priorities of a development office. This full-day workshop, presented by Anne Peyton and Jenn Hayslett, addresses the nuts and bolts of designing a stewardship program to achieve greater donor loyalty. Join us on Thursday, November 14, 2013 from 9-3 p.m.

We’ll start where you are – working through a comprehensive stewardship assessment to identify what you’re doing well, plan for what you can strengthen, estimates for budgeting, and determining your return on investment.  This assessment will help you assess and plan an integrated systems approach to information management, message delivery, and relationship management to build the infrastructure to sustain relationship building with donors. We’ll cover best practices and you’ll leave with a program design, whether you’re just setting up a program or strengthening what you already do.


Who should attend: This workshop is especially relevant for development professionals, executive directors, and board members with a role in donor stewardship. However, it is designed to address overarching systems and organization that will be useful to people at all stages of their careers.


Third Sector New England's NonProfit Center is located at 89 South Street, Boston, MA 02111



Date: Thursday, November 14, 2013 - 9:00am to 3:00pm

Spirit of New Hampshire Community Pillar Awards Dinner

Presented by: Volunteer NH

Volunteer NH is pleased to announce that the Singer family has been selected by the Volunteer NH Board of Directors to receive its highest recognition, the Community Pillar Award, at the 2013 Spirit of New Hampshire Community Pillar Award Dinner.

The Community Pillar Award is given to an outstanding member of the community whose work has fostered the civic engagement of others and has provided a lasting impact on New Hampshire citizens. As with any outstanding contribution to the culture of service, the impact of this community member’s work extends far beyond New Hampshire, the recipient of the Community Pillar Award must have an ethic of direct service and serve to inspire others to become involved.  Previous winners of this award include: the Television Station WMUR, Governor John Lynch, and the Alstead Flood Volunteers and Dean Kamen.

The Singer family and Merchants Automotive Group are no strangers to volunteerism, giving back to their communities, and undeniably making a difference in the lives of so many NH citizens.  From the Gail Singer Memorial Blood Drive, now “Americas Largest One-Day Community Blood Drive”, to providing vans to local not-for-profits, to being Greater Manchester’s top producing volunteer group in the Salvation Army Kettle Campaign since 1996, the Singer family is always there and dedicated to community service.

 On November 12, 2013, The Singer family will be accepting the Community Pillar Award at the Manchester Country Club.  This year’s “black-tie” optional event includes a silent auction, dinner, testimonials, and a well-known comedian to wrap up the night.

Date: Tuesday, November 12, 2013 - 5:30pm to Thursday, November 14, 2013 - 9:00pm
Location: Manchester Country Club, 180 S River Rd.

Spirit of New Hampshire Awards Ceremony

Presented by: Volunteer NH

The 2013 Spirit of New Hampshire Awards will be held on November 14that the Capitol Center for the Arts in Concord, NH.

The Spirit of New Hampshire awards honor outstanding contributions to volunteerism throughout the state of New Hampshire. They augment the many local recognition events that show appreciation for the work of community volunteers and volunteer programs

Each fall, a statewide celebration is held to present Spirit of New Hampshire Awards in two major groups:

Volunteer Service Awards recognize individuals and groups who provide volunteer services that strengthen communities and improve the lives of the citizens of New Hampshire. These awards honor outstanding volunteers - or groups of volunteers - who reflect the strong ethic of service and volunteerism in our state.

Volunteer Program Champion Awards recognize outstanding volunteer programs that provide the infrastructure for volunteers to be successful in their service. Awards in the Volunteer Program Champion category recognize excellent program management, fund development efforts that sustain volunteer programs, and commitment of time/resources to engage employees in community volunteer roles.

Volunteer NH also awards the Spirit of New Hampshire Award, which is selected by a review panel out of the Volunteer Service Awards.

The Spirit of New Hampshire Award is given to highlight the impact that a volunteer can have and how that impact has improved the state of New Hampshire. While all awards are honored and are critical to fostering the tradition of volunteerism, the Spirit of New Hampshire award sets an example of inspiration each year that sets the tone for further contributions of service. The Spirit of New Hampshire award is selected by anonymous vote by a review committee made up of Volunteer NH's partners, past recipients, past nominators, and volunteer program managers from across New Hampshire.

 This year over 90 different volunteers & organizations from all over New Hampshire will be recognized for their commitment to service and New Hampshire's tradition of volunteerism. 

The doors will open at 5:00 PM with the program beginning at 6:45 PM.

Parking is somewhat limited near the Capitol Center for the Arts but we are working with the Concord YMCA to provide shuttling from Storrs Street Garage nearby. 

Miss New Hampshire Samantha Russo will sing the National Anthem.

Date: Thursday, November 14, 2013 - 5:00pm to 8:30pm
Location: Capitol Center for the Arts
