Who We Are

We are a group of passionate professionals that live, work, and play on the South Shore and care about the future of Hingham's Harbor and waterways. Our volunteer board members guide the direction of the organization and serve three-year terms, limited to two consecutive terms. The board meets 4-6 times per year and elects its officers at the annual March meeting.


To help our board collaborate effectively with local land management agencies, we have assembled a group of advisors that represent our local officials and land management agencies. 


Running the day-to-day operation is our executive director and team of dedicated volunteers that help carry out our mission.
