Message  from NHCRA Co-Presidents, Marianne Rousseau and Joan Gross

As we all enjoy the last weeks of summer, we at NHCRA are looking forward to beginning an enriching new year with our members.

We are excited to begin this year as Co-Presidents, and are also pleased to welcome Meredith Richardson, the newest member to our Board of Directors. Meredith is a conflict management specialist and has worked as a Mediator, Facilitator, Trainer, Conflict Coach, Guardian ad Litem, Parenting Coordinator, and Collaborative Lawyer in Maine and New Hampshire. She brings a wealth of varied experience and knowledge to our Board. She is eager to be involved  with our membership, and we are happy to have her on the Board of Directors.

Last year was a productive year for NHCRA. In addition to continuing to offer quality workshops to our membership, we hosted our first “Meet and Greet” event in November at the Common Man in Concord, we instituted “Brown Bag Lunch” meetings at various courthouses and we launched our new website. We are pleased with the progress of our organization and with the additional services now available to our members.

Please check our calendar for upcoming workshops, Brown Bag Lunches and our next Meet and Greet.

We want to encourage all of you to contact any of the board members with your ideas for the upcoming year. The board welcomes your input as we make plans to expand our services to all our membership.
