Section Connection: State Refugee Agency Reps Visit International Law Section Meeting

State Refugee Coordinator Barbara Seebart and Refugee Health Coordinator Laura McGlashan attended a meeting of the NH Bar Association International Law Section at the Bar Center last month.

Seebart and McGlashan talked about the state’s role in managing grants for the two private nonprofit refugee resettlement agencies in New Hampshire. The grants are designed to aid refugees in achieving self-sufficiency through employment support, health care advocacy and other services.

The agencies place up to 150 refugees per year in Manchester, and 50 in Nashua. Seebart said the state’s largest population of refugees is Bhutanese (about 2,000 refugees), followed by Congolese. It is unlikely the state will resettle many Syrians, as New Hampshire has been designated a Tier 3 resettlement site for them.

Section members asked questions and discussed the resettlement process with Seebart and McGlashan over lunch.

Supreme Court Rule 42(9) requires all NH admitted attorneys to notify the Bar Association of any address change, home or office.
