Chase A. Hagaman is the National Grassroots and Outreach Director of The Concord Coalition and host of Concord's weekly radio show, "Facing the Future."

Concord is a nonpartisan organization that educates on the importance of generationally responsible federal fiscal policy.

Hagaman works with community leaders, student groups, business organizations, Concord volunteers and elected officials across the country. He organizes public and private educational events, engages the media and facilitates other grassroots activities.

As host of "Facing the Future," Hagaman dives into topics related to U.S. fiscal policy -- like health care, taxes, national security, the national debt and more --  with elected officials, industry leaders and policy experts. The program is broadcast on Concord, New Hampshire radio station WKXL every Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. It is also available via podcast.

Hagaman is a resident of New Hampshire and member of the New Hampshire Bar. He received his law degree from the University of New Hampshire School of Law and a Bachelor of Science in Finance from the University of South Florida. 

Hagaman’s work with law firms, the court system and state and municipal agencies helped shape his passion for public policy. He invests his personal time in his community, including serving on the Portsmouth Zoning Board of Adjustment, Seacoast Media Group Editorial Board, Portsmouth Music and Arts Center Board of Directors and more. 

He joined Concord to champion the mission of its founders, the late Senators Warren Rudman and Paul Tsongas. As part of the next generation of leaders, Hagaman has become an ardent advocate for lasting reform who works to bridge generational gaps as he brings awareness to fiscal issues.
