Help shape state policies at BIA roundtable

The Business & Industry Association is holding roundtable talks throughout June that will help shape its 2023 public policy priorities.

The Concord area roundtable is June 7 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at Orr & Reno, 45 South Main St., in Concord. This roundtable is co-hosted by the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce.

These important roundtable discussions are held throughout the state, hosted by local chambers of commerce, trade associations and the BIA. The 10 different roundtables are designed to give the business community a voice in establishing a proactive legislative and regulatory agenda for the next legislative session at the New Hampshire State House. Topics like energy prices, labor shortages, workforce housing and tax policies and their impacts on the workplace are first discussed at our roundtables. It’s also how we hear about adverse effects of state rules, regulations and legislation.

To sign up for the Greater Concord roundtable, visit biaofnh.com/roundtables/. Registration is required for planning purposes, but there’s no charge or fee to participate.
