In response to the pandemic, the NH Leadership Series will be changing the format for the coming year to a remote platform engaging past Leadership graduates. This fall 2020, rather than the traditional 9 month face-to-face Leadership Series, we will be offering an Advanced Leadership Series consisting of 4 topics with 4 sessions for each topic.

Applications are now available for the 2021-2022 Leadership Class!

The goal of the Leadership Series is to support the development of advocacy and leadership skills in NH citizens who wish to grow at a personal level to achieve community and statewide change that supports the full inclusion of individuals with disabilities in their schools and communities.

To be eligible: Applicants should live in NH and be either a person with a disability or a Parent/family member of a person who has a disability.

The Series takes place in several areas of the state, including the Seacoast, the Monadnock Region, and Concord. Each two-day session begins around at 12:00 pm on Friday and ends at 4:00 pm on Saturday. Some sessions will include optional Friday morning workshops. Attendees are able to stay overnight at the hotel unless they live nearby. All monthly expenses and reservations (hotels, meals, & materials) are covered for participants.

The deadline for applications is June 15th, 2021.

We are particularly eager that members of the group represent diverse backgrounds, ages, and different geographic regions of the state. Up to thirty-five participants are selected on the basis of their degree of motivation to become well informed about and active in, policy-making and systems change for individuals with disabilities in our state. All applications are reviewed by a selection committee that will choose the participants based on the content of the application and the above criteria. Graduates of the NH Leadership Series belong to a statewide network of over 1,000 citizens creating inclusive lives for people with disabilities.

Please feel free to contact me with questions.
