Directors Circles

Monthly virtual Directors Circles are an opportunity for out of school time (OST) directors to share their successes, challenges, network with like-minded colleagues in the field, ask questions, to build your knowledge in a specific topic, or just come to listen. Join Jamie Nadeau, Executive Director, and other colleagues in the state each month. Professional development hours will be awarded in your NH Connections Information System. Do you have a specific topic that you would like to request? Please email Jamie at jnadeau@acrossnh.org with your request.
