It’s Your Turn to “Speak Out”
Don’t miss this special evening!
Wednesday, November 19th you will have the opportunity to engage newly elected and returning legislators by attending Speak Out, NAWBO’s annual legislative dinner. This is the event where the policymakers “listen to you” as they prepare for the 2015 Legislative Session.
. Speak Out is made available in large part because of our generous sponsors.
This year we want to thank:
• Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico
• Bueno Foods
• Builders Trust of New Mexico
• Greater Albuquerque Association of Realtors
• New Mexico Angels
• New Mexico Prosperity Project
• RDO Strategic Consultants
Here is how Speak Out works. Everybody arrives at 5:30 pm and has a chance to visit and find a table. We have legislators and other policymakers at each table plus a NAWBO moderator who will facilitate the discussions and make sure everyone who wants too gets a chance to chime in. The people at the table who talk least are the policymakers. It is their opportunity to listen to you.
by Kay Carrico, President of NAWBO-NNM
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.
