A Guide to Legislative Advocacy

The Association does not support or endorse any candidate or political party.  Our ability to maintain significant political relevance is tied directly to our advocacy efforts and the relationships we have cultivated over many years with state and municipal leaders, the New Hampshire Legislature, state agency officials. and other stakeholder groups.

As a local official, you work at the level of government that is closest to the citizens, and you are uniquely situated to help legislators understand how pending legislation affects your city or town. We regularly call on local officials to exercise their influence with legislators. Toward that end, NHMA has produced A Guide to Legislative Advocacy for Local Officials designed to help local officials understand and navigate the legislative process, appreciate the importance of it to their communities, and work effectively with NHMA to represent their communities’ interests.
