President’s Message

2016 2017 NHTCA President Min Kennett

2016-2018 NHTCA President Melinda “Min” Kennett

October, 2017

Welcome to the New Hampshire Tax Collectors’ Association Web Site.  This web site is filled with information needed and a great resource to all.  Each tab has information that you need.  Thank you to Brenda LaPointe for her continued hard work making our web site such a useful tool.

It was wonderful seeing so many of you at our NHTCA Annual Conference at the North Conway Grand Hotel. I always leave with a wealth of knowledge and hope that we can continue to give the education and updates needed to achieve our goals.  The Executive Board is a solid group of people along with the Committees for By-Laws, Certification, Education, Finance and Audit, Legislation, and Nominating.  There is a lot that goes into the education of new collectors, the spring workshops, and fall conference.  I thank everyone for their time and effort given to this great association.

We have a wonderful group of County Coordinators for each of the counties in New Hampshire.  Please use them as a resource for updates and changes at your office.  In New Hampshire we have 10 counties, 13 cities, 221 towns, and 25 unincorporated places.  Our County Coordinators are valuable to the association in keeping track of all changes and an asset to their county tax collectors for questions and general help and updated contact information.

We as tax collectors will soon be sending out tax bills, closing the books for 2017, planning 2018, attending spring workshops (March and April), county meetings (summer and fall), and the conference in the month September.  Our 2018 Annual Conference dates are September 19-21, 2018 at the North Conway Grand.

My first year as President has been hectic and rewarding to be so involved individually with so many of you!  My goal is to keep the NHTCA moving in the same direction that it has been moving in.  I am very humbled and honored to be in this position. There is never an idle moment and I look forward to leading the way for another year.

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to give me a call at 636-1450 ext 2 or email me at northumberlandtownclerk@yahoo.com .

Only by working together will the goal of serving our town and the State of New Hampshire to the best of our abilities be achieved.  Success is no accident.  It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what we are doing.

Best Wishes,

Melinda A. “Min” Marshall Kennett, CTC

Coos County Coordinator
