Bill Foster
has worked as a volunteer on trails in New England for a number of years. He has been fortunate to work on several brand new trails, including the Monadnock-Sunapee Trail in the 70ís , more recently the Grafton Notch Loop, and a new trail in Baxter State Park. A trail adopter for some years, Bill is also a NH Chapter level 2 excursions leader. He looks forward to working with chapter members and others on trail work.

Jen Fairchild
Jen Fairchild
Jen Fairchild grew up in Pennsylvania on Lake Erie, where she began her outdoor experiences sailing, skiing, and playing in the woods near her home. Progressing to sailing big boats in Rhode Island and skiing NH as an adult, she daydreamed of one day hiking, kayaking, camping, and backpacking in the beautiful forests and mountains of New Hampshire. After moving to New Hampshire and attending an outdoors weekend program for women, she finally met others who wanted to get outdoors too. Together they joined the AMC, and for the past four years Jen has kayaked, camped at remote sites, hiked to AMC huts in the Whites, and recently took a backpacking course through the AMC (and may have become addicted ;) ).... Jen is thrilled to be a part of the AMC NH Chapter and hopes to help others get outdoors!

John Mullens
John Mullens
Living in NH for 20 years, I fell in love with hiking and backpacking real mountains and XC skiing serious terrain. On moving to Maine, I started sea kayaking, found companions through the AMC Maine Chapter, and soon became an active AMC volunteer and ExCom member. I'm pleased to represent NH and ME on AMC's Board.

The Bonds Traverse is one of the best places to hike. Loves to explore and study the flowers, plants and wildlife along the trail. Always carries a camera along to capture the beauty of the trail and the happy faces of fellow hikers.

Matt Christiansen
Matt Christiansen
Being a Texas native, Matt has found his 'home' exploring the New England mountains and trails since moving to New Hampshire in 2005. He enjoys the pursuit of the 4000 footers and annual section hikes along the Appalachian Trail. Matt has been an AMC member since 2012, after completing his first AT section hike and summiting his first 4000 footer, Mt. Moosilauke. The awe of that first hike has inspired him to continue more outdoor pursuits and volunteer at several trail maintenance events. Matt is Co-Chair of the Membership Committee.
