About the NH Council

The New Hampshire State Council is comprised of members of the New Hampshire Chapters:

  • Basil W. Woods, Jr. Chapter,
  • Merrimack River Valley Chapter,
  • Monadnock Chapter,
  • Great Bay Chapter,
  • Saco Valley Chapter,
  • Pemigewasset Chapter,
  • Ammonoosuc Chapter, and
  • Greater Upper Valley Chapter (NH/VT).

The TU NH State Council, like individual TU Chapters, has a Board of Directors with a Council Chair. Currently the Chair is held by former Basil Woods TU Chapter President, Tom Ives. There is also a Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, and a representative from the TU National Leadership Council (NLC). The NLC is is made up of one representative elected from each state of TU’s 36 State Councils and is responsible for setting the National Conservation Agenda and working on strengthening the organization and facilitating communications between the national and state parts of the organization. For more information visit TU’s NLC web page

The NH State Council oversees state-wide TU programs including the NH Youth Trout Camp, Trout in the Classroom and many projects undertaken by NH Fish and Game. The Council holds regular meetings to oversee the work of the chapters, works to provide a unified voice for TU advocacy in the state legislature, and serves as a critical link with TU national on large-scale projects. The State Council Chair and NLC Representative are required to represent the State of NH to the National Trout Unlimited organization. All of the State Council Chairs meet on a quarterly basis via conference call and once per year at TU's Annual Meeting.

The NLC reps also meet quarterly via conference call and also are required to attend the TU’s Annual Meeting in person. Collectively the chapters, councils and NLC representatives comprise the volunteer portion
of Trout Unlimited.
