New Hampshire Children’s Trust seeking board members

CONCORD – The New Hampshire Children’s Trust, the Governor’s designated statewide community-based child abuse prevention agen­cy, is seeking four new mem­bers to join their board of directors in January.

The NH Children’s Trust is particularly interested in candidates who can bring knowledge and experience about diverse populations; who have skills in philan­thropy/fundraising, media/ advertising, law/justice, public health/health and/or family support consumer/ adverse childhood experi­ences survivor/prevention advocate; and who are con­nected to Strafford, Carroll or Sullivan Counties.

According to the bylaws, the New Hampshire Chil­dren’s Trust is governed by 10-20 passionate and com­mitted community members from around New Hamp­shire with a range of expe­riences and networks. The board of directors meets approximately six times per year. Each director serves on at least one committee and attends face to face and vir­tual meetings as the work of the committee dictates. The current committees include governance, finance, fund­raising and communications.
