NH Primary Training Resources


This Front-Line Primary Training program is a collaboration between Granite State Ambassadors, the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce and the City of Manchester to help us all prepare for the attending guests of the upcoming New Hampshire Primary.

We encourage you to share the recording of this program and the below resources with your staff, fellow business owners and volunteers.

For the five days leading up to the primary, Granite State Ambassador volunteers will be staffing an information table in the lobby of the DoubleTree by Hilton Manchester Downtown. If you are having any specials or events, be sure to email them to me at info@nhgsa.com. You are welcome to drop no more than a dozen menus or schedules off to the table on January 19th.
