2019 Annual Retreat
Our Annual Retreat is a not-to-be-missed overnight networking event at the beautiful Mill Falls in Meredith on Friday, March 29th and Saturday, March 30th.
The event includes a private, buffet dinner on Friday night, breakfast Saturday morning in the hotel restaurant, a mid-morning resiliency workshop with guest speaker Professor Susan Brooks, which we believe will qualify for 90 minutes of CLE credits, and a private, buffet lunch on Saturday. The entire event is $145, but please contact Attorney Kat Hedges if you're interested in attending only a portion of the event.
Please note that due to a change in policy, attendees will be responsible for making their own lodging reservations. Overnight lodging is priced between $119-$199 per person. Please call (844) 745-2931 and mention that you are with NHWBA to book your room. You can also explore room types online here. All our meetings and meals will take place at the Church Landing property, but you may stay at their other properties as well.
Several room types are available, including for those wishing to stay on their own, as well as folks looking to save money by staying with roommate(s). If you need help finding a roommate, please contact Attorney Kat Hedges.
Services at the Cascade Spa
