Megg Acquilano has joined the New Hampshire Bar Association as Director of Professional Development. Acquilano will develop and manage the continuing legal education programs for the association’s attorney members, alongside the NHBA CLE Committee.
Acquilano is experienced in content and curriculum creation, budgets, vendor management, creation of marketing plans for programs, scheduling, e-learning, and more. Immediately prior to joining the NHBA, she was employed with the Londonderry (NH) School District as the district-wide technology trainer for approximately 750 faculty and staff. There, she focused on designing, developing, and facilitating instructional technology training curricula. Her goal was to help teachers build their capacity to better instruct students, and in turn, deepen learning.
Acquilano’s multi-faceted skillset as a teacher, trainer, and administrator proved particularly useful during the COVID pandemic, which started during her first year at the District. As an educator herself, she understood and responded to the challenges of “teaching the teachers” remotely. She helped educators gain proficiency to enhance teaching and learning with a variety of digital media technologies. She was also involved in evaluating the effectiveness of software and applications, creating video tutorials, and the teacher training program curation.
Acquilano earned two master’s degrees from Plymouth State University: one in Educational Leadership and the other in Digital Media.
She is excited about how much of her experience is directly transferrable to the NHBA, particularly the creation and delivery of CLEs in a variety of formats that meet the evolving needs of its growing membership. Says Acquilano, “I’m incredibly honored to become part of the NHBA team. I am excited to be here, grateful for the opportunity, and couldn’t have asked for a better place to land!”
