Bar Leadership: NH Bar Launches Strategic Planning Initiative


Is the New Hampshire Bar Association serving your needs? Are the services and programs it offers useful to you now? How can the bar association better serve members in the future?

Through focus groups, interviews, and surveys over the next few weeks, a member-led work group will be reaching out, asking these questions and listening carefully to the answers. Specific efforts will be made to contact a broad range of members, in rural counties as well as urban areas, in many practice areas, and those from large firms to solos. Out-of-state members (who comprise nearly one-third of our active-status members) will receive an online survey. Representatives of entities that partner with the bar association or comprise the legal community – the courts, University of New Hampshire School of Law, law firms and agencies – will be contacted.

"As a bar association, there is no shortage of good ideas about what we could be doing," said Jeannine McCoy, NHBA executive director. "But in a time of tight resources and a baffling array of choices, the leaders of the NH Bar Association need to focus on guiding the Bar Association… not in a ‘good’ direction, or the ‘right’ direction, but in the best direction."

The results of the strategic planning efforts will be compiled by Elizabeth Derrico of the Division for Bar Services at the American Bar Association, who has assisted many other bar associations in examining their operations, developing strategic plans, and addressing specific challenges.

Members of the Strategic Plannng Initiative work group and the NHBA Board of Governors will meet Dec. 6 to focus on the next steps in addressing the challenges and opportunities identified by this outreach effort.

If you have questions, comments, or want to know more about the strategic initiative project, please contact

If you are in doubt about the status of any meeting, please call the Bar Center at 603-224-6942 before you head out.
