  • Claudia Decker is a Nashua resident and World Language educator who wants to contribute to the educational and outreach mission of NHPBS.
  • Flo Nicolas is a Hudson resident with legal and technology background (host of Get Tech Smart and Get Resource Smart) and co-founder of DEI Directive. She would like to be a viable member of the CAB who will contribute fresh, innovative and creative ideas.

The New Hampshire PBS Community Advisory Board (CAB) is an advisory group that helps New Hampshire's statewide network be more responsive to the specialized needs of the communities it serves. It does this by providing for effective public participation to assist staff in assessing community needs, planning and decision making. The CAB’s members offer advice on programming, other services and gather feedback from the public. The CAB must be independent from the governing board of the station, which is NHPB's Board of Directors.
