Retirement from Bar News
Beverly Rorick, managing editor of the Bar News, has retired from the Bar Association. A retired teacher, Rorick started at the Bar Association as a relief receptionist in 2000 and gradually began assisting the Bar News, first as a proofreader, then writing articles and then as an editor/writer, and in 2009, moving up to managing editor.
Replacing her as managing editor is Craig Sander, Assistant Director of Communications, who has worked for the NHBA since 2007. He also edits the weekly e-Bulletin and helps to oversee the website and the Bar’s multimedia efforts.
Following her retirement on June 1, Rorick’s byline will continue to appear occasionally in Bar News, as she will write articles and provide editing services on a freelance basis. Rorick plans to keep busy providing writing and editing services as a consultant.
The NHBA Board of Governors issued a proclamation in her honor, resolving that: "The Board of Bar Governors hereby congratulates Beverly Rorick on her retirement and thanks her for her contributions to the New Hampshire Bar Association, the profession of law and the public at large. She will be sorely missed."
"Bev inspires us all to stay professional and creative as long as we want and that's a great gift she’s given to us," said NHBA Executive Director Jeannine L. McCoy. It’s been a gift to know and work with her and we look forward to continuing to do that as she takes time to enjoy ‘retirement'."
"Beverly did everything for Bar News – editing, writing, taking photos, supervising the proofing process," said Dan Wise, NHBA Communications Director and Bar News Editor. "It was an intense pace and Bev not only kept up, she always maintained a courteous and gentle approach to all." "She has relentless curiosity, and took particular interest in the activities of globe-trotting Bar members working on rule of law projects," he said. "I don’t think she ever returned from a Bar News interview without saying that the person had something "interesting" to say. And her articles did not disappoint."
