Training or Assistance Offered for Candidate Forum Organizers

If your civic club or organization is interested in organizing a candidates forum in your community, the League of Women Voters New Hampshire will work with you and supply a moderator, if requested. With years of forum experience in our background, we have prepared a manual to make it easy for any civic group to organize and to run a forum. We offer a free training, or if you have some experience and just want advice on a point or two, feel free to contact us. Email the League president via our Contact Us page.
