Community Banker of the Year Award
Each year, New Hampshire Bankers Association seeks nominations for its “Community Banker of the Year Award.” Candidates for this award may be any New Hampshire bank employee and respected community leader who has gone above and beyond in making a significant impact in their community through their time and service.
“We ask our small business owners, community members and leaders to think about a member of the banking industry who has gone above and beyond for their community,” Christiana Thornton, NH Bankers president/CEO explains. “We rely on their feedback to recognize and honor one individual who has lead by example, who has put their community first and whose dedication has gone beyond what is expected of them.”
The Community Banker of the Year Award review panel is made up of several leading public officials. Nomination letters should include an outline of the individual’s recent activities along with achievements, and should be accompanied by at least one letter of recommendation from a community or civic organization. The “Community Banker of the Year” award is presented annually at NH Bankers' Annual Conference in September.
