Legislative Forum

Rockingham Planning Commission hosts an annual Legislative Forum, typically held in early November, on topics of interest to legislators, commissioners and municipal officials. The 2018 Forum is scheduled for November 7, 2018 and will focus on shifting the demographic trend towards a younger population. RPC sponsors this annual forum so municipal officials and RPC Commissioners can meet informally with our legislative delegation to discuss issues important to the communities.

This year’s forum is on “Growing Younger: Planning to Reverse the Demographic Trends in New Hampshire.” RPC has assembled a panel of experts to share their insights as we plan for the future of our communities. Please join our conversation as we consider the regional challenges and opportunities related to accommodating an aging population while attracting and retaining a talented and professional workforce. The panel presentation will be followed by a conversation to address questions and share additional ideas. As in the past, we will hold the forum at Unitil corporate headquarters in Hampton.

Please RSVP by November 1 to Annette Pettengill at 603-778-0885 or apettengill@rpc-nh.org.
