BOARD OF DIRECTORS

CDFA is governed by an eleven-member Board of Directors appointed by the governor and council for five-year terms. The Board of Directors collaborates closely with leadership and staff to guide CDFA’s strategic direction.

By statute, the Board of Directors is composed of four representatives from community development organizations, two from small business, one from organized labor, one from employment and education, two from the private financial community, and the Commissioner of the New Hampshire Department of Business and Economic Affairs or his/her designee.
