Educational Workshops

Two workshops focused on solving labor issues for businesses throughout New Hampshire’s North Country will be presented at the North Conway Community Center, starting at 2:00pm.

Strategies for Solving Labor Issues – Part I, 2:00 – 3:00pm

Our economic vitality is threatened daily with the exportation of skilled labor, the potential end of DACA, a ban on travel, visa approval or disapproval, the I-9 process, ICE and other unforeseen impacts. It is crucial that we take a long-term educated approach to filling our employee vacancies with a limited skilled and ready workforce.  John R. Wilson, Esquire, President and Partner of Goff Wilson, P.A., a global immigration law firm from Concord and Paris, will share information and insights on the issues of keeping our global employee base through immigrant and nonimmigrant programs. Wilson is co-founder of the firm, and his practice focuses exclusively on global immigration. Mr. Wilson has consistently been selected as one of the ‘Best Lawyers in America’ under the ‘Immigration Law’ category published by the National Polling Firm of Woodward-White.

Strategies for Solving Labor Issues – Part II – 3:30-4:30pm

The second part of this workshop will be a panel discussion sharing current labor trends in the valley and career opportunities that are available through apprenticeships, credentialing, certification and licensing.

Please nominate a student entrepreneur that you think is deserving of the 2018 student entrepreneur of the year. Winners will be honored at the Best of the Valley Awards Ceremony.

This event is free to the public and all are encouraged to attend. Get to know your local businesses, find resources to help you at home, in the workplace, to support good health, and in furthering your education or your child’s education.
