The Brain Injury Association of New Hampshire, Governor’s Commission on Disability and the New Hampshire Council on Developmental Disabilities will be hosting a Legislative Leadership Training that will be held on Monday, January 28, 2019  from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm in rooms 201 and 203 at the Legislative Office Building in Concord.  If you are interested in advocating for individuals with disabilities and their families, we ask that you consider participating.This leadership training is for individuals with disabilities, their parents/family members and professionals working in the community to support individuals with disabilities. The training provides state-of-the-art information on legislative leadership relating to disability issues.

 

Professionals in the field, parents, and individuals with disabilities join together to not only provide information, but to share strategies for collaboration and implementation as well. The session will include legislative discussions, audience participation and small or large group activities.

 

The goal of the training is to support the development of self-advocacy and leadership skills in New Hampshire citizens who wish to affect change at a personal, community, and statewide level through public policy and/or legislation for individuals with disabilities in their communities. There is no cost to participants.

 

We are particularly eager that members of the group represent diverse backgrounds, ages, and different geographic regions of the state. Lunch will be provided at the statehouse cafeteria along with a tour of the statehouse.For more information or to attend, please contact Ellen Edgerly at the Brain Injury Association of New Hampshire at (603)332-9891 or ellenedge@metrocast.net.
