Gov. Hassan to speak at Culture OneStop
Gov. Maggie Hassan will join nearly a dozen State of New Hampshire agency leaders as speakers at Culture OneStop, a new conference designed specifically for board members and senior staff at New Hampshire’s cultural nonprofits, as well as for library trustees.
Culture OneStop will feature hour-long panels addressing issues related to charitable trusts, employment security and labor, insurance, and resources and economic development. Commissioners from those agencies will moderate their specific panel sessions and will be joined by experts from those fields.
Gov. Hassan will speak during the lunch session. She will be followed by short presentations made by the Department of Agriculture, Markets and Food, the Department of Education, the Department of Environmental Services, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Liquor Commission, the Racing and Charitable Gaming Commission, and the Community Development Finance Authority.
Content for Culture OneStop has been directly impacted by an online survey completed by New Hampshire cultural nonprofits. Attendees will also be able to ask questions in an open forum.
Culture OneStop takes place at the Grappone Center in Concord, N.H. on May 31, 2013 from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
“New Hampshire’s cultural nonprofits help make our state a wonderful place to live and visit, and are vitally important to our economy,” said Gov. Hassan. “I’m pleased that so many of our state agencies are participating in Culture OneStop and offering their expertise to these organizations.”
