NHBA Leadership Academy Class of í17 Announced
Congratulations to the 13 attorneys selected to participate in the NH Bar Association Leadership Academy, which began last week with a get-acquainted reception at the Bar Center.
The Leadership Academy is a nine-month leadership-training program designed to foster the professional growth and enhance the leadership skills of a diverse group of attorneys. Attorneys from litigation and transactional practices, as well as four attorneys from state government, a public defender and an attorney in NH Circuit Court administration, the first Judicial Branch staff member to participate in the program, were selected. This is the fifth class to participate in the program, which includes six educational modules, participation in the Associationís major membership meetings, and a kickoff retreat starting Friday, Oct. 21. Scholarships, funded by private donations, reduce the tuition cost for some attorneys needing financial assistance to participate.
