Legislative Day Returns
On April 11, 2018, NHAVA held it's "Legislative Breakfast" for the first time in a few years. The morning's session was held at Tandy's Top Shelf Restaurant in downtown Concord. The first order of business was holding the group's General Membership meeting, which included committee reports and updates of NHAVA efforts.
At the conclusion, we were joined by New Hampshire House of Representatives Speaker of the House, Gene Chandler. Speaker Chandler provided some great information, not only about his personal life and Legislative experience, but also talked in length and answered questions about the workings of our State House, how Bills are introduced, their process through the House and Senate, and how they get passed. It was quite informative and we sincerely appreciate the Speaker's time with us.
Afterwards, we went to the State House and were given a full formal tour of the building, including the House and Senate Chambers and Governor's office (where an Executive Council meeting was in session), learning of its history, uniqueness, and character.
Thanks to our NHAVA Legislative Committee for putting the day together and for our membership that turned out. We look forward to picking up this educational and fun day again next year!
