imageJoin us in April as we welcome Deirdre M. Firth of the Economic Development Dept. for the City of Albuquerque as she discusses “New Directions and New Opportunities in Economic Development for the City of Albuquerque and State of New Mexico.”

As Deputy Director of the Economic Development Department, Ms. Firth is responsible for numerous projects and programs involving business recruitment, retention/expansion, and new business start-ups.



As the legislative session wound down in February, the NAWBO Public Policy committee was kept informed of bills that were passed and signed by the Governor.  However, it’s always interesting to get an insider’s perspective on how things worked during the session.  We were fortunate to have State Representative Paul Pacheco attend our March committee meeting.  He gave us an overview of how the legislators worked together to get some key legislation passed - one of which was the One Stop Business Portal Act, which should assist businesses setting up in the State of New Mexico.

image Our 3rd Annual NAWBO MEANS BUSINESS Symposium was an outstanding event!  Attendees had the opportunity to stay and meet with the experts who presented the workshops and to do business to business exchanges of support and information with our trade show exhibitors. 

A very special thanks to all the NAWBO members and supporters who made this an outstanding event – especially Sandy Cody, who chaired the event, and Patricia Chavez, who made things happen with the booths and the sponsors.  Sponsors, exhibitors, participants and the Sheraton Uptown hotel staff contributed to the team’s success!
