Social Media Participants
Our social media followers are much more than fans. They are active, engaged citizens. Nearly every day, we ask our social media community to weigh in on an important issue affecting civic life in New Hampshire. The results of these discussions are summarized in our Citizen Voices write-ups, which are then distributed to media, elected officials, policy makers, and other interested individuals and organizations. In this way, we amplify the opinions of citizens and put them front-and-center in the debates and decisions that shape state policy.
While we value the contributions of every member of our community, our Founding Members were here from the start, helping to shape the mission, goals, and structure of our organization. They come from all regions of the state and from across the political spectrum. See a full list.
Once in a while, someone comes along who exemplifies our principles. These individuals have reached the pinnacle of citizen engagement through service to their New Hampshire neighbors, communities and fellow citizens both within the state and beyond. The Board of Directors chooses to recognize and celebrate these individuals as Honorary Members. Meet them.
