E-NEWS UPDATE FROM  WACNH -- NOVEMBER 2011

Dear friend,

Although we may not have power at our WACNH office today, tonight's event is still on! We hope to see you this evening to discuss China's future with Professor Michael Santoro. Join us at 6 p.m. at UNH Manchester - where you'll find a warm room and compelling conversation - for the second part of our FREE fall series, "Primary Concerns: Critical Foreign Policy Issues at the 2012 Ballot Box." 

If you've enjoyed our events so far this year, please consider making an Annual Gift to support our work to bring the world to the Granite State. With state and federal budgets being cut and isolationism on the rise, there has never been a more critical time to support our mission. MAKE A TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DONATION HERE or consider becoming a member if you aren't one already. If you become a member before November 30, you'll be entered to win a set of books from our fall speakers, including "Arab Voices" and "China 2020." BECOME A MEMBER TODAY!
