Perks

Official Perks are offered to active GSAs in gratitude for your service and to generate referrals. Some perks require a specific number of volunteer hours and some will only require that you are an active, certified GSA working in NH’s Tourism Industry.

Keep in mind that all perks are generous gifts and part of each companies marketing budget – host companies may restrict earned perks to one-per-household.

They are subject to change at any time and pend availability. Please show your GSA Membership Card.

White Mountain Attractions – 2020

Dear Industry Partner,

I want to thank you and your organization for supporting the 17 major Attractions over the years. Some of you have reached out to inquire about the White Mountains Attractions Complimentary Pass Program. For those unfamiliar with the pass program, these passes have been generously offered over the last 60 years by the 17 member Attractions of the White Mountains Attractions Association. The passes have been issued as a training tool to front-line personnel of the state Welcome Centers, local chamber of commerce information booths,  Granite State Ambassador volunteers, local police departments and New Hampshire State Police officers to experience, learn and help promote the iconic White Mountains Attractions.

As a resident of our State and tourism related business, I am sure you understand the challenges and restrictions that Covid-19 has imposed on all business operations. Regrettably, the Attractions have made the difficult decision to suspend the Complimentary Pass Program for 2020.

As you may know, each pass represents a sizable contribution from the attractions admitting 2 people per pass and unfortunately with the capacity guidance and restrictions for this coming season it will be very challenging to accommodate season pass holders, paying visitors and over 4000 complimentary passbooks.

We are hopeful that business operations will return to normal next year and we will be able to re-introduce the program in some capacity.

We appreciate your continued patronage and look forward to welcoming you back to the Attractions in the future. If you have any questions, I can be reached via email at charyl@visitwhitemountains.com, or by cellphone at 603-315-6529.

Sincerely,

Charyl Reardon, President
White Mountains Attractions Association



Manchester-Boston Regional Airport

Parking Perks

Who may use this privilege?
MHT-GSA Volunteers (must have volunteered at least 50 hours of volunteer service at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, with your last volunteer shift less than 2 months prior to your departure date)

When can you use this perk?
When you are flying using Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, you can park your car for up to FOUR weeks per YEAR in increments of no longer than TWO weeks at a time in the parking garage or long-term lots.

How to request a parking pass?
Contact Kelly Bryer at kelly@nhgsa.com to request a parking pass. Once your information has been verified it will be forwarded to Chris Adams in airport administration.

NOTE: If you don’t hear from Chris within a couple of days, PLEASE CALL KELLY to verify that the pass is being processed.

What information do you need to provide?

Your Name and GSA Class/Date (i.e. Joe Smith, Purple Finch Class ’99)
Your Departure and Arrival dates*
Your vehicle information (year, make, color & license plate number)
Your e-mail address and/or phone number (in case she needs to contact you)
Last date you volunteered at MHT

Remember
You MUST apply at least one week (or more) prior to your departure date (Monday-Thursday only, no Fridays please). There are times when Chris cannot accommodate parking pass requests right away! Your pass should be available for pickup at the Communication Center within two business days after the request is received.

If you have received your temporary parking pass and a change to that pass is necessary, please contact Kelly to make arrangements.

* Note: If your flight is due to arrive later in the day or evening, be sure to ADD AN EXTRA DAY to your arrival (back) date. This will allow you to leave the garage if your plane arrives after midnight — which will be “the next day.”

Vacation parking is ONLY permitted on level 5 of the Parking Garage or in the long-term parking lots.

If you should have any questions regarding this policy, please contact Kelly Bryer, NHGSA Executive Director & MHT Center Manager at kelly@nhgsa.com 603-960-0272 (cell).
