NANTUCKET, MA – The Nantucket Historical Association (NHA) has announced a change in board leadership. Its current president, Chip Carver, has resigned as president as of June 1; he will remain as a trustee until the Annual Meeting on July 8, 2022, when his current term as President would have expired. Susan Blount, current Board Vice President, is assuming the role of President from June 1- until August 19, 2022.
“The NHA today remains an important institution on the Island of Nantucket. The outlook for the future has never looked brighter, thanks to our dedicated staff. Last week, we welcomed a dynamic new Executive Director, Niles Parker. While the pandemic was a challenging time for everyone on the island, we exited it stronger than we entered, with zero debt and a substantial endowment. This financial strength will allow us to invest over $2 million in our portfolio of properties over a two-year period and produce an exciting line-up of exhibits that we will be sharing with the public this summer,” says Susan Blount.
The NHA thanks Chip Carver for his time served as Board President. Carver helped guide the organization through the pandemic and led the charge on a nationwide search to hire a new Gosnell Executive Director. He has made a tremendous impact on the organization during a pivotal time while being a generous supporter. The NHA thanks him for his commitment and guidance over the last two years.
