    Former Sen. Janeway recognized for service to NHRS

    May 11, 2017
    Last month, former state Sen. Harold Janeway retired as the Chair of the NHRS Independent Investment Committee (IIC), a position he has held since its creation in 2009. He was also the Chair of the investments sub-committee of the 2007 retirement commission that developed the initial recommendation to create the IIC, and as a state senator, he shepherded the bill through the legislative process. All of us at NHRS wish the senator all the best in his retirement and offer our assurances and commitment that the IIC will continue to follow the road map that he so expertly charted ten years ago. -- Dr. Richard Gustafson, Chair, Board of Trustees, and George P. Lagos, Executive Director, NHRS
