Rob Moore named President of NLRA Board of Trustees

September 26, 2012
BRISTOL — The Newfound Lake Region Association (NLRA) is pleased to announce the election of Rob Moore to the role of President of the Board of Trustees.

The NLRA is a member-supported, nonprofit organization, established in 1971 to protect Newfound Lake and its watershed. The Association - through education, programs and collaboration - promotes conservation and preservation of the region's natural, social and economic resources. The NLRA is supported by approximately 500 members and 70 businesses.

Moore was raised and then educated on the campus of the New Hampton School, in New Hampton, and spent many summer days on Newfound Lake. His New Hampshire roots instilled in him a love of the Lakes Region, and left him with a calling to protect the area's natural resources through educational and philanthropic initiatives. A graduate of Bowdoin College, Moore is a career educator and fundraiser, who currently serves as the Assistant Head of School at Lawrence Academy, in Groton, Mass.

Beyond his work with the NLRA, Moore's local service is far reaching. He is a member of the board of trustees at New Hampton School, his alma mater, and a trustee of The Mayhew Program — a program that "challenges and helps at-risk New Hampshire boys to believe in themselves, work well with others, and find their best." Moore, his wife Laura, and three daughters share a home on the West Shore of Newfound Lake.

The NLRA is an active and growing organization. Recent NLRA accomplishments include:

-designing and implementing a $700,000, eight-year-duration, watershed management plan project.

-constructing a storm water mitigation/demonstration project with the Town of Bristol.

-acquiring a 30-acre parcel of conservation land.

-assisting in conservation of approximately 1,000 acres of watershed.

-inspecting more than 3,000 boats per year and educating boaters about dangers of invasive species.

-completing 27 consecutive years of water quality monitoring.

-developing land use policy with town Planning Boards within the Newfound watershed.

-developing commercial forestry and transportation anti-degradation policies with local and state stakeholders.

-continually seeking ways to strengthen the connection between a healthy environment and sustainable economy.

Moore's leadership will continue to advance the work of the NLRA by promoting the preservation of the Newfound Watershed—Moore's home, and a habitat worthy of care.
