President’s Message

2016 2017 NHTCA President Min Kennett

2016-2017 NHTCA President Melinda “Min” Kennett

September, 2016

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.  I thank 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.

I would like to welcome Benjamin Bynum from the Town of Canterbury, as our new Second Vice President and Hannah Joyce in moving up to our First Vice President.

We have a solid 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 information.

We as tax collectors will soon be sending out tax bills, closing the books for the year, planning next year, attending spring workshops, meetings, and the conference next fall.  Our 2017 Annual Conference will be in October and in 2018 will be in September.

I come from a small community and live a very normal life.   I have a part time deputy, so the next few years I face a lot of challenges in juggling time.  As I have moved up to President of the Association, I feel that I am giving back to those who have helped me along the way in educating, encouraging, and helping me. Now it’s my turn to help those coming in like I did in 2005.  My goal is to keep the NHTCA moving in the great path that is has been.  I am very humbled and honored to be the 7th person from 4 towns out of Coos County to become the President.  There is never an idle moment and I look forward to leading the way for the next 2 years.

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to give me a call at 636-1450 ext 2 or email me at .  I have a Facebook account as Min Marshall Kennett.  I have a Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat as minkennett.  If you are a social media butterfly follow me!

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.

Thank you,

Melinda A. “Min” Marshall Kennett, CTC
NHTCA President
Coos County Coordinator
