Volunteers Needed Town Boards, Committees, Fire & EMS

By Marj Roy, Town Administrator

“Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy.  You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.”

Town government is always in need of volunteers to serve on boards and committees; to help at the polls on election day; to count votes after the polls close; to become EMT’s, First Responders or Firefighters; to help when processes change at the Transfer Station, or to serve as a coach, referee, or member of the Recreation Committee.

Volunteers, who work with or around children or elderly persons, enter the homes of citizens, or collect or manage money, will be subject to a criminal background check per RSA 41:9-b.  All volunteers of the Recreation Committee will be subject to a criminal background check prior to being appointed as a volunteer.

Candidates for a committee must attend at least one meeting of the committee to which he/she is applying for appointment. Candidates must complete and return a Volunteer-Appointment Form, available from the Select Board’s office or at andover-nh.gov

If you are interested in serving the Town in some way, please contact Lois at the Town Office for an application and information.   If you are not sure in which capacity you would like to serve, please make an appointment to talk with Marj Roy, Town Administrator.  New candidates will be interviewed by the Select Board. Appointments to boards and committees are made by the Select Board unless state law dictates otherwise.  

If you have any questions, or would like more information, please call the Town Office.
