Conference to answer cultural nonprofits’ questions
Culture OneStop, a new conference featuring commissioners from State of New Hampshire agencies along with other experts, will take place at the Grappone Center in Concord, N.H. on May 31, 2013 from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Culture OneStop is designed specifically for board members and senior staff at New Hampshire’s cultural nonprofits, as well as for library trustees. The conference will feature hour-long panels addressing issues related to Charitable Trusts, Employment Security and Labor, Insurance, and Resources and Economic Development.
At lunch, short presentations will be made by the Charitable Gaming Commission, 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, and the Community Development Finance Authority.
Gov. Maggie Hassan has been invited to address the conference.
Content for Culture OneStop will directly be impacted by an online survey completed by New Hampshire cultural nonprofits. Attendees will also be able to ask questions in an open forum.
“The collective knowledge that will be in one place, for one day, makes Culture OneStop an outstanding opportunity for New Hampshire’s cultural nonprofits to learn the kinds of information they need to successfully, efficiently run their organizations,” said Van McLeod, commissioner of the Department of Cultural Resources.
Registration for Culture OneStop is now open. The cost is $75 and includes panel sessions, lunch and refreshments during breaks. Partial scholarships are available. Learn more and register at www.nh.gov/nhculture.
The Culture OneStop committee includes the N.H. Department of Cultural Resources, the N.H. Department of Justice, the N.H. Center for Nonprofits, the N.H. Business Committee for the Arts and the UNH School of Law.
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 Commission on Native American Affairs. 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.
