Public Policy Starts With You . . . So Say YES

Yes, my vote counts! Yes, I can vote early!

Yes, it’s my responsibility to me, my business and my community to just do it!

October offers the beginning of absentee voting as of October 7 and early voting as of October 18.

If you are not sure who you want to pull the lever for, then you have until 7pm on Tuesday, November 4 to decide and take action.

NAWBO is a demonstration that as women we are successfully marrying our personal beliefs and our economic beliefs. This election requires that each of us reconcile who we believe as a state or federal policymaker will best serve New Mexicans. We won’t all agree but we can all act and at the end of the day we will have made a productive and meaningful difference.

Come on Wednesday, November 19, and you will have the opportunity to engage again by attending Speak Out, NAWBO’s annual legislative dinner, where elected legislators listen to you as they prepare for the 2015 Legislative Session. Save the date and watch NAWBO communications for details.


President’s Message

We had an excellent turnout for our Oktoberfest Networking Event at Office Alternatives at Coors/Montano. Beautiful facility, good food from Heimat House Restaurant and lots of great networking. It was so great to see Sheryl Brown (Taking Care of Business) and other friends from NAWBO past and meet many new friends.

Hope to see you on TUESDAY, October 14th, back at the Sheraton Uptown. We’ll learn about Marketing and Sales from Monique Jacobson, Cabinet Secretary for NM Tourism. She’s going to be inspirational, so bring a friend with you.
