Pro-business group aims to train New Mexico’s next generation of women policy leaders

ALBUQUERQUE—Today Rise NM, a non-partisan advocacy group that promotes pro-business policies in New Mexico, announced its training program for 2018-2019. The organization kicks off its new season of events with its Fall Summit scheduled for December 1, 2018, at the UNM Student Union Building in Albuquerque.

“There are hundreds of women throughout New Mexico who are building businesses and creating opportunities in their communities. Rise NM gives these trailblazing women a channel to make their voices heard in Santa Fe,” said Rep. Kelly Fajardo, chair of the Rise NM board of directors.

Fajardo added, “Supporting strong business growth in New Mexico will improve the quality of life for all New Mexicans. We invite everyone who shares this perspective to join us at our Fall Summit in Albuquerque on December 1.”

The Fall Summit will give women an opportunity to connect with other business and community leaders from all areas of the state. Participants will hear from nationally-recognized speakers about efforts in other parts of the country to build healthy communities through free market economy-based solutions.

Rise NM is also hosting an intensive 7-month Campaign School to help women develop their advocacy skills. Monthly modules will offer training on effective communications, the principles of policy development and good government, and managing an issue-based or candidate campaign. The campaign school begins in February 2019.

It aims to identify, unite, educate, and train the next generation of women leaders for New Mexico.
