COSMA - YES - - - Ole - No Way!

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. NMBC made some great contacts and will be working to bring some of the ‘best practices’ for manufacturing and other business development from around the nation to New Mexico to help improve our struggling economy.

ABQ Sick Leave Ordinance - important court hearing this Thursday: The controversial Albuquerque sick leave ordinance will be considered in the Bernalillo County District Court this Thursday, August 10, at 9:00 am. As part of the Albuquerque Coalition for a Healthy Economy, NMBC is standing with others challenging the legality of the ballot initiative process. Having the presence of the business community in the courtroom is critical. The groups formerly known as ACORN, now called ‘Organizers in the Land of Enchantment (Ole),’ are pushing for the sick leave ordinance and will have a large presence. We should too.

WHEN: Thursday, August 10, 2017, 9:00 A.M. and WHERE: Bernalillo County Courthouse, 400 Lomas, NW, ROOM 710. Show your support in Judge Shannon Bacon’s Courtroom. Don't forget…no cell phones allowed in the Courthouse.

“Hard times don’t create heroes…it is during the hard times when the ‘hero’ within us is revealed.” Bob Riley.

The keynote speaker will be New Mexico's own decorated Hero, USAF Senior Master Sergeant Thomas Case, a two time Silver Star recipient.
