Shemitz to leave Children's Alliance
After more than eight years at the helm of the Children’s Alliance of New Hampshire, Ellen Shemitz has announced plans to step down as president of the organization this summer.
Shemitz said her resignation will become effective at the end of July.
According to Douglas Hatfield, chair of the alliance’s board, under Shemitz the alliance “has become a strong and dynamic organization providing leadership, information and policy expertise.”
The alliance most recently has advocated on such issues as public assistance reform, universal public kindergarten, access to quality education, state funding for children’s health insurance and the rights of children.
Shemitz is working with the Board and staff of the Children’s Alliance to maintain the continuity and momentum of the ongoing work of the organization during the transition in leadership. – JEFF FEINGOLD
