A conversation with Chair of the Dartmouth Board of Trustees Bill Helman ’80 and Executive Vice President Rick Mills, postponed after a March snowstorm, is set for Tuesday, May 2, in Cook Auditorium at the Tuck School of Business.

Helman, who leaves the board in June, will reflect on his eight years of service to the board and take questions from the audience at Mills’ town hall meeting.

Mills will invite Helman to discuss “his most interesting, challenging, and rewarding moments on the board,” he says.

Elected to the board as a charter trustee in 2009, Helman led the presidential search committee that recruited President Phil Hanlon ’77. During Helman’s 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 May 2 in the Murdough building’s Cook Auditorium at Tuck. The meeting is open to all.

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