Your New Hampshire Bar Keeps Track of You

Keeping track of members' contact information, answering questions about the practice status of members, keeping track of NHMCLE credits, and issuing member ID cards may not be glamorous tasks, they are a necessary and important part of the work of your Bar Association.

Membership Information
With more than 5,000 active-status members, NHBA member information changes daily. Attorneys switch firms, law offices relocate, home addresses change, email addresses are added.

The Bar regularly reminds members to keep their member record up to date as important communications from both the Bar Association and the Court rely on the NHBA database. The Bar promptly responds to requests for "letters of good standing" and inquiries from the public regarding the practice status of members.

Protecting Your Privacy
The Bar Association is zealous in protecting member information and does not provide electronic files of its membership list for any commercial purpose. (A strict policy governs the sale of one-time use mailing labels to legal-oriented vendors. Members may opt-out of inclusion on lists provided to vendors. Contact for more information.)

Member ID Cards
The Bar Association now produces member ID cards produces member ID Cards periodically upon payment of dues, and issues them to all newly admitted members. These ID cards can be used in a variety of situations. A pilot project allowing attorneys with special credentials expedited access to the courthouse, developed in collaboration with Hillsborough County Sheriff James Hardy, is working well at the superior court locations in Nashua and now Manchester.

It is hoped that this program can be expanded to other court sites.

Keeping Track of CLE Credits
For efficiency, the Bar Center, under an agreement with the NH Supreme Court Minimum Continuing Legal Education Board, administers Supreme Court Rule 53. In recent years, the Bar Association has strived to make the SC Rule 53 compliance process more member-focused. Members can check their compliance status by viewing their online record through the website.
