CONCORD - A free, non-partisan instructional seminar for those who are interested in running for a seat in the New Hampshire House of Representatives will be held on May 10 in Concord.

The workshop, entitled "How to Get Elected," will include presentations by Deputy Secretary of State David Scanlan and two sitting members of the NH General Court. Topics of discussion will include how to run an effective campaign, the forms that must be completed, deadlines for those forms and the responsibilities and time commitments involved in serving in the House.

"We agreed to co-sponsor this seminar because healthcare issues are among the most important issues that come before the Legislature," said Gina Balkus, CEO of the Granite State Home Health Association. "For that reason, it's equally important that we have interested, informed and engaged citizens seeking office, and the event is open to members of every political party who want to know more about the process of running for election."

Additional sponsors of the event include the New Hampshire Home Health Care Association, the New Hampshire Hospice & Palliative Care Organization, the New Hampshire Hospital Association and the New Hampshire Medical Society.

The free seminar will be held May 10 from 1:30-3 p.m. at the NHHA, 125 Airport Road in Concord. To pre-register, call 225-5597 or email Chloe Roe at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
