The Presidential Who's Who Among Business and Professional Achievers (PWWABPA) organization is a leader in the recognition of excellence in business and professional arenas. Each year PWWABPA reviews thousands of profiles. Only those who meet its high standards of performance and leadership in their field are granted membership and issued a copy of the publication.
New Hampshire’s Department of Cultural Resources includes the State Council on the Arts, the Film and Television Office, the Division of Historical Resources, the State Library and the American Canadian French Cultural Exchange Commission. The Department strives to nurture the cultural well-being of our state. From the covered bridges and traditional music of our past to the avant-garde performances and technological resources of today and tomorrow, New Hampshire’s culture is as varied as its geography and its people. This strong cultural base—which truly has something for everyone—attracts businesses looking for engaged workforces, provides outstanding educational opportunities and creates communities worth living in.
