Leadership Greater Concord

Leadership Greater Concord Class of 2019 on Government and Politics Day with New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu.
Class of 2019 learning about the relationship between local, county and state government from New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu during Government and Politics Day.

Leadership Greater Concord fosters civic awareness in the community and participants are equipped with information they need in order to become more involved in activities that will enhance the region.

Beginning in September (Class of 2020 pictured above at The Mountain Club on Loon), a select group of people will embark on a ten-month odyssey through the inner workings of Greater Concord. Their travels will take them from its beginnings as a small town by the railroad tracks to the city it is today—and identify what’s being done to prepare for the future. Then, each month, a day-long program will focus on an aspect of life in Greater Concord: history, the arts and culture; education; livable communities and sustainability; government and politics; the criminal justice system; economic development; communications and the media; health and human services and reflections and moving forward.
