A longtime leader of grassroots snowmobiling in the Northeast is crossing the state line to run a neighboring state’s snowmobile program.
Dan Gould — for 14 years the president of the Snowmobile Association of Massachusetts (SAM) and media personality for that organization — has been hired as the new executive director of the New Hampshire Snowmobile Association. Aside from his work with SAM, Gould has also served as a leader in International Snowmobile Congress’ Northeast Chapter and even as vice president of the American Council of Snowmobile Associations, so certainly his knowledge and expertise in snowmobiles reaches beyond the Massachusetts state line.
Below is the press release from the New Hampshire Snowmobile Association
TILTON, NH – The New Hampshire Snowmobile Association is pleased to announce Dan Gould as Executive Director. He will be responsible for executive leadership, communications, representation and administration. He will ofﬁcially start July 1, 2017.
