Pursuant to several years of effort by the New Hampshire Conflict Resolution Associations, formerly the New Hampshire Mediators Association, and other interested persons and with the support of state legislators, NH RSA 328-C was enacted in 1990, thus creating the New Hampshire Marital Mediator Certification Board. On January 1, 2010, the name of the board was changed to the Family Mediator Certification Board. On October 1, 2015, the board became part of the Office for Professional Licensure and Certification – Technical Division.
The board consists of eleven members appointed by the Governor and Executive Council or by statute:
|Marianne Rousseau, C.F.M. (Chair)||NHCRA||09-16|
|Lynn Aaby, C.F.M.
|Elizabeth Christensen, C.F.M.||NHCRA||11-16|
||Public at Large||04-18|

|Erin Jasina||Public at Large||04-18|
|Honorable Lucinda Sadler||Family Division Judge||10-17|
|Terry Sturke, M.S.||Mental Health Professional||04-17|
The Board now meets on the first Tuesday of every month to review applications, address any complaints and discuss other issues relative to certifying family mediators.
The next meeting of the Board will be September 6, 2016 at 4:15 PM in Room 116, OPLC.
