The NH Center for Nonprofits has announced that Joseph DiBrigida, Attorney and shareholder of Sheehan Phinney, and Lyn Gelinas, CTP, Senior Vice President, Government Banking Division of Citizens Bank, were recently elected to the Board of Directors.

“We are pleased to add these talented people to the Center’s Board of Directors,” said Kathleen Reardon, Chief Executive Officer of the NH Center for Nonprofits. “They each bring a deep knowledge and commitment to the nonprofit community, as well an understanding of the issues facing our state. Their leadership will be an asset to the organization as we continue our work to elevate the visibility and capacity of the state’s nonprofit sector.”
