Workshop for 2020 Census on tap

NASHUA – Preparations are underway in Nashua and across the country for the 2020 U.S. Census. Representatives of Nashua nonprofits, community organizations, business leaders and educational leaders are invited to participate in a Census Solutions Workshop for the 2020 Census. It is scheduled for 9-11 a.m. Thursday at Nashua Community College, Room 150.

Nashua Mayor Jim Donchess will speak, while the workshop will feature a presentation from local representatives of the U.S. Census Bureau, Nashua Regional Planning Commission, Lamprey Health and members of the Nashua Complete Count Committee.

Workshop participants will form groups for breakout sessions, answering questions to get a better understanding for how to make the 2020 Census a success in Nashua.

Donchess called for the creation of a Complete Count Committee, which follows a structure set up by the U.S. Census Bureau. Mayor’s Office staffers, city directors, city staff and community leaders have come together to form the committee to increase awareness for and to motivate Nashua residents to respond to the 2020 Census.
