NH Bar Foundation: IOLTA Leadership Bank Spotlight - Merrimack County Savings Bank

Richard Uchida, a member of the NH Bar Foundation Board, presents Paul Rizzi, president of Merrimack County Savings Bank, with the IOLTA Leadership Bank plaque. The presentation is part of an ongoing effort to provide greater recognition of the contributions of banks to the success of the IOLTA program.

This year marks the 29th year of the IOLTA program in NH, one of the first programs started in the US.
The New Hampshire Bar Foundation, on behalf of the NH legal community, thanks Merrimack County Savings Bank for its steadfast support of the Interest on Lawyers Trust Account program, and its participation as a Leadership Bank in 2010-2011.
