Calling all New Hampshire Foster, Adoptive and Kinship Parents

Be the Change!  Give us a day of your time!

You are cordially invited to the New Hampshire Foster and Adoptive Parent Association

Strategic Planning Retreat

Saturday, April 5, 2014, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Granite State College, 25 Hall Street, Concord, NH

(A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.)

Ever wonder what your state association could do for you?  Ever wonder what a local support group could do for you? How can we band together for advocacy, events, networking and more? We can do it ALL by helping ourselves. We have designed a day-long retreat to reinvent and ‘rebrand’ our state association and move forward to a bright future. Please join us!

We are looking for 30-45 individuals ready to make a small commitment of a day to help move our state association to a new era. Following our retreat, action items will be developed which you may or may not want to be involved in but in order to move forward we need you folks, the grassroots people, to become a better association, ready to meet the needs of our families and our resource parents. Your ideas and input matter!

Some action items could include revising our by-laws, restructuring our association, seeking out funding sources, establishing regional service areas, revamping our web-site, planning more social activities, setting up a network of support for new resource parents and so much more.

Facilitating our day is Mr.  Jim Bulger, who is immediate past president of the Vermont Foster and Adoptive Parent Association.  Jim will lead us in a day of self-discovery and self-help.  At the end of the day we will be able to move ourselves forward and our state association forward to a better place.

To RSVP for the day please call or text  state association president Jacquie Capello at (603) 817-2290 or email her at capellotribe@metrocast.net.  Please give her your name, district office or association you are from and your phone number.  Remember, the more the merrier!  See you on the 5th!
