I need your help. Last week I announced a new format for the Weekly Roundup. After taking a couple of months off from the blog, I've come to the conclusion that I can no longer commit a day and a half each week tracking down event listings.

Starting this week the new format will be limited to my top picks and any events you share with me through the event submission form.

The new format is also going to include more community events. 

After attending a lot of roundtables, symposiums, and other similar discussion events, it's become abundantly clear that many of the challenges faced by local businesses stem from the fact that a lot of people feel disconnected from the world around them. 

  • The exodus of millennials from the state
  • The rise in depression in people from all age groups
  • The inability to find a resolution to the homeless crisis and opioid epidemics
  • Increases in crime and gang activities

I'll keep it as business oriented as possible, just don't be surprised if you see the occasional social event or activity that focuses on bringing people together to solve a community problem. 

HINT: Sponsoring a community event is a great way to get your company name noticed in the community, :)

Reminder: I can't share your event if you don't tell me about it. (event submission form) Deadline is 5:00 PM every Wednesday. 

In case you're wondering why I included a church event in a business roundup, it's because I'm shocked and appalled that we now live in a time when a faith-based organization has to worry about safety and security to the point where they are taking training from security professionals and doing active shooter drills.

I'm neither a Christian nor affiliated with FaithBridge, but I appreciate the role religious groups play in providing support to the local community. (soup kitchens, daycare, alcohol and substance abuse support groups) 

The Weekly Roundup is a listing of upcoming business and networking events in Manchester, Bedford, Hooksett, and Goffstown, New Hampshire.
