Who Knew? ( I thought I did)
A treasurer of some sort for over 20 years
I have known Cheryl Lindberg for almost 25 years. I first met her when I was the Postmater of Norwich, and she was town treasurer, Cheryl came to the Post Office to mail out bulk mailings to the residents, and take care of other town of Norwich business mailings. She has been town treasurer since 1996.
I also would see Cheryl at most Select Board meetings. I was there to film them for CATV channel 8 and she would be there as the town treasurer, or just as a Norwich resident/voter. I knew she had something to do with the Norwich Fire District also. I guessed that she was also a treasurer of that organization. She is the treasurer of the Dresden School district as well. She has been in this position since 2010. As a Norwich town treasurer, one must also serve as the Norwich School district treasurer.
I would interact with Cheryl as a member of the Norwich Business Council. I represented the Norwich Lions Club as Public Relation chair and she was the Council co-president. We have worked together on several Business council projects as well as some association with the Norwich Fair. She has been on the Business council for 8 years and each co-chair serves for 2 years. She has co-chaired with Dan Fraser and Charles Taylor.
I recently learned something about Cheryl, that I didn't know. She was elected President of the New England States Government Finance Officers Association (NESGFOA) in September. There web site is www.nesgfoa.org .
There are 6 New England States included in this organization.They are Connecticut,Massachusetts,Maine,New Hampshire,Rhode Island, and Vermont.
She represented Vermont as president for 6 years and has been on the Vermont board for 15 years. The Vermont web site is www.vtgfoa.org
The NESGFOA board is made up of 3 members from each New England state, plus two officers.
Each year the organization holds an annual educational conference and meeting to elect officers for the next year, rotating around the six New England States.
Cheryl, a mother of three has been in Norwich for 35 years and has raised her children in Norwich. She worked for Mascoma Savings bank for 14 years and retired in 2017.
She is Chair of the Norwich board of Listers and has been on the board since 2012. She also has been a Trustee of public funds since 1994.
Cheryl, as town treasurer will serve on the new finance committee along with several newly appointed members.
Here are some photos that she provided me for this interview.
