New Hampshire offers some great regional and statewide leadership programs that enable you to learn more about your community or region, network with current leaders, delve into issues facing your region or the state, and gain skills that enhance your ability to serve in leadership capacities.
Leadership New Hampshire: Developed in 1992, Leadership New Hampshire (LNH) was created in response to recommendations from the Governor’s Commission on the 21st century to “identify emerging talent; motivate emerging leaders concerning statewide issues and perspectives; build the expectation that they will take on leadership roles on statewide issues; and develop a network for effective leadership.” Nearly two decades later, LNH has inspired, educated, and engaged over 550 citizens to leverage the unique opportunities, and to understand the specific issues facing the Granite State. Through a unique year-long educational program, Associates interact with top state officials, judges, educators, prison inmates, students, artists, corporate leaders and others who receive, deliver or make decisions and policy that affect services across the state.
Regional Leadership Programs: There are currently eight regional leadership programs in NH. They have many similarities to the statewide program, but often attract people that want to learn more at the local level before considering a program such as Leadership New Hampshire.
