Matt Dodge announced Jonathan Noury-Elliard from NH Rocks
NH Rocks is a community development entity – helping NH communities. NH Rocks aims to strengthen the local economy through affordable residential tourism and modern business success strategies. Ultimately, we work to promote a better New Hampshire. We "close the loop" between businesses and residents, effectively increasing savings for both. For businesses, we offer tremendous value and opportunity to save on taxes, alongside affordable business success services (e.g.: accounting, marketing, consulting, content creation, etc.) via NH Means Business. This is to offset the discounts offered to residents through the Locals Card. 
The Locals Card is the only state-wide discount and events membership exclusive to residents. By keeping the cost of this membership low, residents realize their value rapidly. Over time, the savings equate to hundreds of dollars for the individual which eases the burden of bills and allows for greater local participation.
