    ONE SKY COMMUNITY SERVICES HAS ADDED NEW BOARD MEMBERS TO DEEPEN COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

     

    ………In its efforts to raise awareness and integrate more effectively into the communities where the clients it serves reside, One Sky Community Services recently added three more Board members who will help facilitate this effort. The three new Board members are Mark Connelly, Chip Moynihan and Robert Madison. Moving forward, there are plans to add more members who can help address more directly some of the issues facing the organization, such as more comprehensive dental care, housing and transportation.

     

    Mark Connolly is a former Deputy Secretary of State and Director of Securities Regulation for the State of New Hampshire, a graduate of Dartmouth College and the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University and brings to One Sky extensive financial experience. He was awarded by the New Hampshire Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) with the Enforcement Award in 2007 and the Outstanding Service award in 2010. In 2016 he was a candidate for Governor of New Hampshire. He also is a former Board member of the NH Child and Family Services and a current Board member at Strawbery Banke Museum.

     

    Francis “Chip” Moynihan retired as the Director of Financial Services for PIAM, the Physicians Insurance Agency of Massachusetts (subsidiary of the Massachusetts Medical Society) and as the principal of the Moynihan Group which provided employee benefits for small business (group health insurance) for many years in New Hampshire. Today, he serves as a member of the NH Judicial Conduct Committee and an employee benefits consultant. He also brings to the Board his active work and volunteerism in the community.

     

    Robert Madison has worked in the field of human services for over 30 years, as a Social Worker, Respite Coordinator and an Education Specialist particularly in the area of Developmental Disabilities. Over the years, both he and his wife have been foster and adoptive parents to 12 children (now adults) and six with different Developmental Disabilities (they are also parents to two biological children as well). In 1986, Governor John Sununu awarded them “The Adoptive Family of the Year Award”, given in grateful recognition of their outstanding and meritorious service to special needs children in New

    Hampshire. In addition to his extensive work in the field of human services, Robert also brings strong advocacy and volunteering experience to One Sky and his first-hand knowledge of the extensive work of the organization over the last 35 years.
