LINDA SAUNDERS PAQUETTE WILL REMAIN AS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

To: Friends of New Futures

Dear Friends:

The New Futures board of directors is pleased to announce that Linda Saunders Paquette will remain with New Futures as Executive Director until the end of 2017.

The Board and Linda reached agreement that in light of a significant new project, on which Linda has been working for the past several months, it made sense for Linda to stay on in her capacity as Executive Director to ensure that the project is well established. The Board of Directors and the New Futures staff are thrilled to continue to have Linda’s leadership and guidance through an important expansion of New Futures’ work.

Linda began her tenure as Executive Director in October 2010. Under Linda’s leadership, New Futures’ impact on alcohol and drug policy in New Hampshire has increased significantly. Linda’s commitment to excellence and integrity is reflected in the team of extraordinarily talented staff she has hired and supported. She has forged important partnerships through shared services agreements with other organizations whose missions align with that of New Futures and has strengthened collaborations with numerous stakeholder groups. Under Linda’s guidance, New Futures has strengthened its internal processes and is well positioned to continue as a strong partner on nonprofit advocacy efforts in a rapidly evolving healthcare environment.

Thank you for your ongoing support of New Futures.

Sincerely,
Tim Murray
New Futures Board Chair
