The NMBC is a true grassroots operation that will educate individual voters about the candidates and issues in their district and motivate them to take that knowledge to the polls and vote.
It is the voter who will affect the change we need because educated voters will elect the best candidates when they understand the issues. Reaching those voters is where the NMBC will make a distinct difference in political races.

New Mexico represented at the 2016 Conference of State Manufacturers Associations (COSMA): As the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) State Affiliate Group (SAG), NMBC represented New Mexico last week at the COSMA in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

- Who in NM has integrity, courage and a heart for service?
Where have all the Heroes gone? We Know…
NMBC knows where to look – it’s right here in New Mexico. President Ronald Reagan once said, “Those who say that we're in a time when there are no heroes, they just don't know where to look.” NMBC couldn't agree more.
- A positive economic outlook and growth expected…
As the State Association Group for the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), NMBC is well positioned to be a strong advocate for growth of this vital industry in New Mexico. The time is right with positive momentum sweeping the nation and so many in our state who need jobs.
- Good news and bad news. Which do you want first?
Good news: Someone besides NMBC is talking about the fact New Mexico needs to fund classroom programs and teacher salaries – not more college buildings. NMBC is pleased to see that former Governor and current Chancellor at New Mexico State University Garrey Carruthers is saying NM has too many college campuses. That point has been made to voters by NMBC repeatedly over the past six years, most recently in 2016 when CNM asked for a tax increase to put up more buildings even though they already have 9 campuses within 25 miles of each other. Read the Carruthers article from the Albuquerque Journal HERE.
