The NH Bar Association is seeking nominations for positions on the NHBA Board of Governors for the membership year starting in June 2017. The petition is available on the Bar's website.
The membership will elect two at-large governors. These board seats carries a three-year term.
Nomination for Vice President (one-year term) will also be made by petition.
Members in Cheshire, Coos, Grafton, Merrimack and Rockingham counties must nominate county governors, each for a two-year term. In addition, Sullivan County members must nominate a governor for the 1 year remaining in the 2-year term because the governor appointed last year has moved, so is not eligible to serve. County Governor nominations require 10 signatures from voting members in the particular county; officer and at-large petitions require 25 signatures.
Petitions are due March 1, 2017; election to be through online ballots sent to eligible members starting April 1. For information about serving on the Board, contact NHBA Executive Director Jeannine McCoy.
