The NH Leadership Series: 30 Years of Training Leaders in Disability

I didn’t know a soul when I slid into my seat during the very first session of the NH Leadership Series (NHLS). As the mother of a 3-year old who had disabilities and someone who was brand new to the state, I hoped to just listen and take in information. The sessions were charged with energy and the speakers, brought in from all over the country, were experts in their fields. Although the first Series was only three sessions long, the impact was felt almost immediately -- our hearts and brains were stirred up in tornado-like winds!
