CONCORD—The New Hampshire Supreme Court, which has overseen the judicial disciplinary process for almost 25 years, is looking for members of the public interested in volunteering to serve on the Judicial Conduct Committee.

The 11-member JCC was created in 1977 to enforce the Code of Judicial Conduct. Its members now serve for three year terms and typically meet once a month.

Two new public members, Elizabeth Lown of Amherst and Jay Rosenfield of New London were named to the JCC on August 20. Their appointment followed the resignation of David A. Hodges Sr. of Salisbury and John R. Newsom of Holderness. The appointments of JCC members Terence R. Pfaff of Manchester and Anne Coughlin of Concord expired on August 1.

Anyone interested in being considered for appointment to the JCC should submit a biographical sketch and a letter detailing why they are seeking the position to Howard J. Zibel, Clerk, New Hampshire Supreme Court, One Noble Drive, Concord NH 03301.
