Join 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.
Ms. Firth manages the City’s business incentive programs, including Industrial Revenue Bonds and Local Economic Development Act projects, and is widely recognized for her expertise in these areas. She has had a long involvement in legislative and policy issues, and in technology-based economic development. She is active with technology commercialization programs at the University of New Mexico, the Air Force Research Laboratory, and Sandia National Laboratories, including the Sandia Science and Technology Park.
Professional papers include “Technology Transfer Programs: Identifying Critical Community Elements for their Support and Success,” presented to the National Association of Business Economists.
After Ms. Firth’s presentation we will have our Sponsor and Corporate Partner Appreciation. Our Yearly Appreciation dinner is to recognize their continued support - whether it be monetary or in their participation in our events.
