ROC-NH helps homeowners in manufactured-home parks form cooperatives and purchase and manage their communities. Tara Reardon has moved from Vice President of that team into a part-time Government Relations role. She’s replaced by Sarah Marchant, who will have the dual position of Chief of Staff and Vice President of ROC-NH and brings extensive knowledge about housing, housing development, and municipal affairs.

Joining the ROC-NH team as Senior Director will be Jeannie Oliver, a law professor and staff attorney for the Energy Clinic at the Vermont Law School Institute for Energy and the Environment. Oliver’s past work includes partnering with the ROC-NH team to bring solar arrays to four resident-owned communities (ROCs). She has also represented ROC voices at meetings of N.H.’s Public Utilities Commission, local planning boards, and in court.

Kelli Cicirelli will become ROC-NH’s Director of Organizational Training and Leadership. In this role, she can more-fully exercise her passion for providing resident-owned community members with the tools they need to successfully own and operate their co-ops and serve as effective leaders in their communities and beyond.

Some hires and moves occur immediately, others in early March.
