Community Banker of the Year Award

The New Hampshire Bankers Association annually honors one New Hampshire bank employee who has truly gone above and beyond to improve the State of New Hampshire through their civic and community engagement.  He/she is a respected industry professional who has made a significant impact on those around them, by inspiring his/her peers to become involved in community service.

Since 1994, NH Bankers has honored an individual each year chosen by a panel of leading public officials.  If your nominee did not receive the award in the past, we encourage you to submit your nomination again this year.

This prestigious award will be presented during the banquet at the Annual Conference being held September 6-8, 2019 at the Long Wharf Marriott in Boston, MA. 

This year, we are pleased to announce that the 2019 Community Banker of the Year will receive the honor of having Governor Chris Sununu attend lunch with them at their bank! (NH Bankers will contribute $500 toward the luncheon to be held at the recipient's bank location in New Hampshire. Details will be sent upon receipt of nomination.)

The deadline for nominations is Friday, June 21, 2019. Click here for a sample of the questions.
