Concord has been rated one of the safest and best places to live, not only in New Hampshire, but in the country.
CONCORD, NH (March 2022) – The Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce’s annual leadership program for area professionals is accepting applications for the class of 2023. Leadership Greater Concord (LGC) has introduced over 600 community members to civic activity and volunteer possibilities in NH's Capital Region for nearly 30 years.
“If you are somebody that wants to learn how different pieces and parts of a big system work together, and what you can do to help it out, I would just say it's a great learning opportunity,” said Deputy Fire Chief, John Chisholm, a member of the LGC class of 2022. This highly immersive program begins in September 2022 and continues with monthly sessions days through May 2023. Participants will get to know different aspects of the city during day-long sessions that cover history, arts and culture, education, livable communities and smart growth, government and politics, the criminal justice system, economic development, communications and the media, and health and human services.
LGC offers an all-star lineup of speakers, including prominent business and civic leaders who are actively working in the Greater Concord community. Past speakers have included Governor Sununu, Mayor Bouley, Chief Osgood of Concord Police Department, CEO Jim Schachter of New Hampshire Public Radio and Dr. Elizabeth Daly, MHP, Chief of the Bureau of Infectious Disease Control. LGC participants have personal conversations with these presenters and continue to engage with them after graduation.
The LGC program also fosters bonds between classmates—motivated professionals from a wide variety of industries. “I was able to learn so much about the city, but learning from the others in the class was the best part,” wrote a member of the LGC Class of 2021. “I can't say enough great things about the course and the group.”
