The Board would like to express its sincere appreciation to its outgoing members:


• Secretary, Jaime Prout, who – along with her shrewd input on matters before the Board – was diligent in her mission of keeping the membership up to date on the happenings within the organization.

• Chair, Holly Beene, who rolled up her sleeves and took on the role with gusto, bringing new ideas and renewed energy to the organization. Her dedication has been an inspiration and has kept NHLA moving forward, especially over the past year.
Please join us as we wish them all the best in their coming endeavors. We look forward to their continued involvement.

The Board would like to express our deepest gratitude to Jeffrey Creem, outgoing Research Director, for his tireless dedication to his position and to liberty in New Hampshire as a whole. The NHLA has been incredibly fortunate to have an activist like Jeff in one of its most critical roles, not only for his reasoned and detailed analysis of legislation, his principled fairness, and his unassuming leadership, but also for bringing levity to what is often a very serious Gold Standard with such gems as “A penalty of felony ventriloquism has no place in a free society.” We look forward to his continued participation.
