Member Photos and ID Cards
If you want your photo to appear on your NHBA member ID card, please send a passport-style photo suitable for identification purposes in digital format (.jpg format preferred) to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail a photograph to Website Coordinator, NHBA, 2 Pillsbury Street, Suite 300, Concord, NH 03301.
Submitted photos will appear in the online NHBA Member Directory. Photos received will be posted on the website as soon as possible.
Member photos are provided on a periodic basis to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office for use in their alternative screening process for NHBA members entering the Hillsborough South Courthouse. See below for the Requirements of Participation for the Security Pilot Project.
Member Identification Cards
To make it easier for NHBA members to identify themselves as practicing attorneys, the Association issues member identification cards to those members on Active status at the time of issuance. Cards are issued after each Supreme Court Admission, upon payment of Active dues and Court fees.
If you require a replacement card, or you wish to add or update a photo, please contact Member Services Coordinator Rosemarie Atwood. There is a $10 processing fee for the issuance of a replacement card. There is no charge for updating your photo on the Website Member Directory.
Hillsborough County Superior Court Security Pilot Program
How do I request a magnetic access security card for the Hillsborough County Superior Court Security Pilot Program?
- be a member in good standing of the NH Bar Association
- have a valid NHBA member ID card with the same photo that appears on the Bar’s website directory
- complete a Access Card Holders Agreement form (to be read, signed and personally presented to the Sheriff’s office at the Hillsborough County Superior Court in Nashua).
How soon can I obtain the credentials once I submit a photo?
Please allow 3-6 weeks after the photo is received by the NH Bar for processing. Once the Association and Sheriff’s Department databases are updated and you have a corresponding Member ID Card with photo, the Sherriff’s office will accept your Access Card Holder’s Agreement and process your request for a magnetic access security card.
Cooperation between Bar Association members and the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office has resulted in the Security Card pilot program successfully reducing wait times for security screening while enhancing a neutral environment at the courthouse. Continued success for the Nashua pilot program is an essential first step for the Association's efforts to have the system extended to Hillsborough North when reopened, and to work with other County Sheriff departments, asking them to consider implementation of similar systems in their jurisdictions.
