NH Children’s Trust seeks 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 its board of directors in January.

The trust is particularly interested in candidates who can bring knowledge and experience about diverse popula­tions; who have skills in philanthropy and fundraising, media andadvertising, law and justice, public health and/or family support; and who are connected to Strafford, Carroll or Sullivan coun­ties.

The board meets about 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.

The Governance Committee re­cruits committee members and board candidates year-round. Elections for directors occur at the annual meeting, which is typically held in December. Terms begin in January and run for three years.

Directors may serve up to three con­secutive terms.
