Chair of the Dartmouth Board of Trustees Bill Helman ’80 will reflect on his eight years of service to the board at a March 15 town hall meeting hosted by Executive Vice President Rick Mills.

“I plan to ask questions about what he considers his most interesting, challenging, and rewarding moments on the board,” says Mills.

Helman, who leaves the board in June, will also take questions from the audience.

Elected to the board as a charter trustee in 2009, Helman led the presidential search committee that recruited President Phil Hanlon ’77. During his tenure, Dartmouth developed its new residential house system, and he led the board through the process of establishing the Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society.

At the end of Helman’s tenure in June, trustee Laurel Richie ’81 will succeed him as chair.

The town hall session, part of Mills’ ongoing series of community discussions, will run from noon to 1 p.m. on March 15 in Spaulding Auditorium at the Hopkins Center for the Arts. The meeting, which had originally been scheduled for March 8, is open to all.

Mills launched the series in October 2015, calling it an opportunity to foster a broad discussion about Dartmouth’s future.
