Great Customer Service and Word-of-Mouth marketing is king and we do it best, but not without a lot of hard work behind the scenes! Each year our passionate volunteers participate in multiple, targeted tours and trainings to stay up on all New Hampshire has to offer so they can give the best and most knowledgeable referrals. Our GSA certified volunteers serve approximately 20,000 hours annually and engage with over 1 million guests in-state and out-of-state at over 40 Welcome Centers and Events leaving a warm, friendly impression of New Hampshire, which keeps our guests coming back time and time again. With tourism being New Hampshire’s second largest industry, repeated and extended visits are vital to our economy. Please join us so we can ensure our volunteers have all the resources, and learning opportunities they need to do the best job they can for your community.
