International Visitors Program
WACNH hosts more than 275 visitors from more than 75 countries each year, with an economic impact of more than $660,000 in the state.
As the only Granite State member of Global Ties U.S., WACNH hosts up-and-coming leaders from around the globe though a U.S. State Department initiative. The visitors are here to learn from local professionals about specific subject matter and take that knowledge back to their home countries.
Whether it's an animator from Uruguay or a CEO from Madagascar, we create a series of programs based each visitor's individual needs with resources from around the state. Visitors also have the opportunity to take part in our home hospitality initiative, thanks to members of WACNH, our citizen diplomats, who offer a meal and a conversation in local homes. This program is important in both its social and economic impact; visitors stay in local hotels, shop in local stores, and eat in local restaurants, all while building a positive impression of America.
