President’s Message

October, 2014

Welcome to the New Hampshire Tax Collectors’ Association Web Site.

First, I would like to say “Hello” to everyone!  I hope that you have had a good summer and the fall and winter will go smoothly for taxes and all of the “other” things that we do.   I also hope that you use the website for lots of information from the association and the executive board.

The executive board meets each month, on the second Thursday of the month at Plodzik & Sanderson’s office in Concord.  If anyone has something that they would like brought up at one of the meetings please call or e-mail any of the board members. (You can find that information under Organizational Information on the website. We would like to hear from you!)   After the meetings, minutes will be posted so all of you can stay informed about what takes place.  A special thank you goes out to Plodzik & Sanderson for allowing us to use their building for the meetings.

It was a great conference in North Conway!  The North Conway Grand is so accommodating working with Terri Briand and they go out of their way to make sure we have everything we need.  There is so much work involved trying to find a place that will take all of us and all of the meeting rooms that we need.  I want to give Terri a huge thank you for all of her work; it is something that is worked on year round.

I would like to remind everyone about the certification program that has been going strong for 25 years, and still growing.  If you haven’t been, I suggest that you go. It is such a rewarding, inspiring and educational experience, you won’t regret it.

If there are any changes in your Town, or a community near you, as far as Tax Collectors are concerned please let me know.  For example, if there is a new deputy, someone has stepped down or up, or if there will be a swearing in ceremony, if you let me know soon enough I will try to make it.  I want to be involved!

There will be four spring workshops, they usually take place in the months of April and May.  If you can’t make the one closet to you then you can always go to one in another location.  New collector’s workshops will also be held in the spring.  Check the website for details.

The county coordinators try to meet once a year, for their county, but this year we will be trying something a little different.  We will post in February each county’s meeting place and what the meeting will be about.  You can then pick which meeting you would like to attend.  We would like to see more involvement and are always looking for improvement, so if you have any ideas, please let us know.

In closing I trust that all of you will have a good year, and please keep checking the website for updates.

Thank you,

Raymah W. Simpson
