There are over 200 conservation commissions in New Hampshire for the declared purpose of ensuring the proper use and protection of the natural resources in our cities and towns. Conservation Commissions are authorized to accept gifts which are held in the Conservation Fund, along with municipal appropriations for conservation purposes.
What are the fiduciary obligations of a Conservation Commission over the receipt and disbursement of Conservation Fund assets? What duties are imposed on your Commission to adhere to the wishes of donors? What can the Conservation Fund be spent on? What financial reporting obligation does the Conservation Committee have and who does the committee report to?
Join NHMA’s Legal Services Counsel Stephen C. Buckley and the New Hampshire Association of Conservation Commission’s Executive Director Barbara Richter who will cover these important topics to aid Conservation Commissions in fulfilling their statutory duties to manage these conservation funds properly.
This webinar is open to members of the New Hampshire Municipal Association and members of the New Hampshire Association of Conservation Commissions.
