Why attend Culture OneStop?

Designed for not-for-profit board members and library trustees as well as for senior staff from New Hampshire’s cultural organizations, Culture OneStop is a day-long professional development event that will deliver the information those entities need in order to continue to successfully contribute to our state’s economy.

  • Department of Resources and Economic Development: Economic development and tourism issues
  • Department of Employment Security: Employment and labor issues

A panel of experts from these field will give short presentations and answer questions provided in advance by members of New Hampshire's cultural not-for-profit industry. There will also be an opportunity for attendees to ask questions in an open forum.

During the lunch session, short presentations will be given by the following:

  • Charitable Gaming Commission
