Campton's Hannah Joyce named president of NH Tax Collectors Association

October 10, 2018
CAMPTON – At the Sept. 20 annual Fall Conference for the New Hampshire Tax Collectors Association, Hannah Joyce of Campton was sworn in as the organization's new president for a two-year term.

Joyce has worked as both the Town Clerk and Tax Collector in the Town of Campton for nearly 20 years. She began her career in the town working under former TC/TC Linda Mower before she took over the position in 2003.

She has represented Grafton County for the New Hampshire Tax Collectors Association since she was appointed as a co-coordinator with Raymah Simpson of Bristol in 2009 and, beginning in 2016, has served on the association's Executive Board in several capacities. Joyce has been a member of the Finance and Audit Committee, was Second Vice-President for a term and most recently was named First Vice-President, which prepared her for her new role as the Association President.

The installation took place in North Conway during the Gala Banquet that also celebrated the 80th Anniversary of NHTCA. Master of Ceremonies for the evening was Stephan Hamilton, Director of the N.H. Department of Revenue Administration and also in attendance was Commissioner Lindsay Stepp of the NHDRA. Joyce was sworn in by Taylor Caswell, Commissioner of the New Hampshire Department of Business and Economic Affairs.

According to the NHTCA, each year taxes are collected in 234 cities and towns, and 25 unincorporated places throughout New Hampshire. The association's core purpose, they said, is to "keep the state's tax collectors supplied with the necessary knowledge and tools needed for the successful execution of their offices."

Joyce said she looks forward to serving as president over the next two-years when she will strive to be the best leader she can as she works to help other tax collectors in their roles as elected town officials.

"I feel this association has really supported me and taken me to where I am now," she said. "To be able to give back and help those who have helped me all along is an honor and a privilege."
