Business Roundtable Series – April 12th

Many of the great ideas for pro-business, problem solving legislation we passed in the 2011-2012 Session came directly from business leaders like you.  The State Representatives who are members of the NH House Business Caucus are focused on promoting policies that improve the climate for businesses, and we can only do that successfully when we maintain an ongoing dialogue with you.

We are pleased to announce our first Business Roundtable of 2013 will be held on Friday, April 12th, from 8:30 am until noon in Concord.

We hope that you will mark your calendars and plan on participating.  For our space planning and agenda planning purposes, it would be helpful if you could email Rep. Laurie Sanborn at RepSanborn@gmail.com  if you are interested in learning more or attending.

Feel free to contact us at anytime with feedback and input on pro-business legislation, and please check out our website at www.ProBusinessNH.com and sign up for periodic updates.
