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.
- Remembering Our Fallen Heroes
Home of the free because of the brave, may we never forget that freedom isn’t free.
We are grateful to live in a country that was founded on freedom and opportunity for all. Beginning today, with the formal holiday on Monday, many will enjoy time off from work in observance of Memorial Day. As for New Mexico Business Coalition, our office will be closed on Monday.
We hope you will join us as we celebrate, remembering those men and women in uniform who have died defending our freedom. NMBC wishes you a restful, fun and safe Memorial Day spent with loved ones and filled with appreciation for the sacrifices others have made.
- Just Breathe …. and Vote!
Special Session starts tomorrow: There’s been a lot finger-pointing, name-calling, and postcard mailers with bad information over the past two months. Now, it’s time to take a breath, pray for a short and successful session, and move on to productive business!
We should be New Mexicans first with the desire to move our state from its dismal statistics to the greatness we all know is achievable. We won’t get there with animosity and blaming. Take the time – right now – to send an encouraging note to your senator and representative and tell them you would like to see a short special session that ends with a budget that works for all New Mexicans.
- And the NM Champion Award goes to…

On Friday, 5-12-17, NMBC attended a meeting and gave comments in Sandoval County concerning a proposed country ordinance on oil and gas development. In between all that was the BASH (Business and Social Hour) titled, ‘Engaging the Community in Energy,’ on Thursday, 5-11-17. Whew! No wonder NMBC is known as New Mexico’s ‘Voice of Energy!
- ‘All of the Above’ and MORE at Thursday’s BASH

- National Day of Prayer
Much more than a slogan on the #USA dollar bill, 'In God we Trust,' reflects what a blessing it is to be an American. As our nation struggles with foreign and domestic threats, economic insecurity, cultural tensions, and continual challenges to basic constitutional rights, NMBC encourages citizens of the United States to exercise one of their most precious freedoms – the right to gather, turn to God, and pray.
- ABQ needs a good BASH... (Business and Social Hour, that is)
It’s almost time for the Albuquerque BASH (Business and Social Hour)! Join with business leaders, elected officials, candidates for office and community leaders on May 11, from 4:30 – 6:30 pm at the Courtyard by Marriott in Albuquerque for appetizers, cash bar, good information and a great time.
