We will be hosting 15 international visitors for this in-person program.  Themes for this program will include discussing 'Right to Know' laws, financial transparency at the state level, and local open government initiatives. We are also planning meetings that will highlight laws and regulations used by journalists to help obtain information. These IVLP participants will also have the opportunity to attend a Memorial Day parade as part of their weekend cultural opportunities in NH. 


In the past year WACNH has worked to navigate the challenges of the pandemic by working with the Office of International Visitors at the State Department and Global Ties U.S. During this time we have rapidly and successfully implemented IVLP Virtual Exchanges. While these will never replace in-person programming, it is proving to be a valuable tool for continuing to engage our global community in vital exchanges of ideas.

With many recent advances in vaccines the, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State has set a potential date of March 1, 2022 for in-person programming to resume.

Please note, the safety of U.S. citizens, as well as our international visitors, is a top priority. Additional updates will be provided once more information is received.
