Normandeau Associates President Pam Hall
Joins Forest Society Board of Trustees
Pam Hall, President and CEO of Normandeau Associates, Inc., recently joined the board of trustees for the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests (Forest Society).
Based in Hampton, Normandeau Associates is a nationally recognized natural sciences environmental consulting firm incorporated in 1970. As President, Pam led the effort to grow the company from a small regional firm with annual sales of $2.5 million to a $20 million employee-owned firm doing business throughout the U.S. In 1998 she received the Environmental Merit Award for Service to the Environmental Industry from the Environmental Business Council of New England.
In addition to the Forest Society, Hall serves on several other non-profit boards including the Seacoast Science Center in Rye, which she has chaired since 2007. She also serves on the New Hampshire Corporate Wetlands Restoration Partnership (NHCWRP) board, and she was a founding board member of the New Hampshire Chapter of The Nature Conservancy and served for 17 years. She was also a board member of the Trust for New Hampshire Lands, and she served for two years on the advisory board for the Ecological Industrial Park in Londonderry, during its conceptual stages.
Hall was appointed by the governor to serve on the Land and Community Heritage Commission charged with developing the NH Land and Community Heritage Investment Program (LCHIP). In 2008 the governor appointed her to the board of directors of VolunteerNH!, of which she is currently vice chair.
A long time resident of Portsmouth, NH, Hall is an amateur birder, kayaker, and gardener. Twenty-five years ago she began turning her lawn into a natural habitat that supports wildlife and helps prevent runoff from her property.
“We’re excited to have someone with Pam’s experience join the board of trustess,” said Forest Society President/Forester Jane Difley. “She brings a great deal to the organization, both professionally and personally.”
Founded in 1901, the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests is the state’s oldest and largest non-profit land conservation organization. Supported by 10,000 families and businesses, the Forest Society’s mission is to perpetuate the state’s forests by promoting land conservation and sustainable forestry.
