Fond Farewell: Joceline Champagne
Joceline Champagne, Coordinator of Pro Bono’s Low-Income Taxpayer Project, is leaving for an exciting opportunity with the IRS as New Hampshire’s Taxpayer Advocate. In her six years with Pro Bono, Joceline has led the Taxpayer Project to a new stage of effectiveness through her own case involvement, organizing valuable volunteer trainings, recruitment of both CPS and attorneys to assist low-income taxpayers and much more. In addition, she has been instrumental in Pro Bono’s foreclosure prevention efforts through the Home Rescue Project and helped launch and supervise Pro Bono’s successful SWAT or eviction defense project. She will be sorely missed but all wish her well in her new endeavor.
"It was such a privelege and honor to work with volunteers and staff at the Bar Association," commented Champagne. " I’m very excited about my new position but sad to leave my colleagues at the Pro Bono Program and my work with Bar members. As a member of the Bar myself, I have gained such an appreciation for the commitment of the Association, staff and volunteers to equal justice."
