The Board

The Board meets monthly throughout the year and there is an annual meeting each June. All regularly scheduled board meetings are open to the membership. Please contact the chapter secretary for upcoming meeting dates.

As part of our succession plan, we are always interested in hearing from talented and committed members of our HR higher education community looking for an opportunity to serve on the board, in a volunteer capacity, to lead and strengthen the work of the Northern New England chapter.  If you can contribute your time and energy, and are interested in exploring this opportunity, please contact the Chapter President for more information.
