FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 10, 2013
Shelly Angers, N.H. Department of Cultural Resources
N.H. agency leaders’ presentations available via cable access network and online
Presentations featuring leaders from more than a dozen New Hampshire state agencies are now available via the state’s cable access network and online.
Recorded at the 2013 Culture OneStop conference, the four one-hour programs include panel discussions about insurance, charitable trusts, employment security and labor, and economic development, including tourism. Each panel is led by the commissioner from the corresponding state agency and includes information from experts in those fields. Questions presented by conference audience members are answered as part of each program.
An additional 30-minute program features remarks by Gov. Maggie Hassan, followed by three-minute mini-presentations by commissioners and other representatives from the Departments of Environmental Services, Education, Health and Human Services, and Agriculture, Markets and Food, as well as from the Racing and Charitable Gaming Commission, Liquor Commission and the Community Development Finance Authority.
“The work done by these agencies is vitally important, and people aren’t always aware of the services they provide,” said Van McLeod, commissioner of the N.H. Department of Cultural Resources. “The Culture OneStop series of programs offers a terrific introduction to some of the many ways state government serves our different needs.”
Culture OneStop was developed by the N.H. Department of Cultural Resources, the N.H. Department of Justice, the New Hampshire Center for Nonprofits, the New Hampshire Business Committee for the Arts and the U.N.H. School of Law. The programs were recorded by Concord TV, Concord, N.H.’s community television center.
