NHBA Board Elections Complete
David McGrath, president and managing director at Sheehan Phinney Bass + Green, was elected Vice President. He served as the Hillsborough North County Governor from 2014-2016.
Four newcomers were elected to County Governor seats (two-year terms) on the NH Bar Association Board of Governors: Kristin Fields of Martin, Lord & Osman, Belknap County; Jim Cowles of Walker & Varney, Carroll County; Dan Will of Devine Millimet, Hillsborough North; Sarah Lavoie of Burns Bryant; Strafford County.
Cathy Shanelaris of Shanelaris & Schirch was reelected to the Hillsborough South seat. Because there were no nomination petitions submitted, the board will appoint a Sullivan County governor.
Scott Harris of McLane Middleton, Vice President of the NHBA, was elected President-elect, but due to David Ruoff being appointed to the Superior Court bench, and his subsequent resignation from the board, Harris will coordinate the Bar leadership fulfilling the duties of President for 2016-17.
Also elected were John Curran of Curtin, Murphy & O’Reilly, Governor-at-Large, and Jennifer Parent of McLane Middleton, ABA Association Delegate.
