2020 Conference cancelled

Out of concern for the health of our members, conference participants, and the staff at the Canyon Club, the 2020 New Mexico Press Women Conference has been postponed until March of 2021. Conference panelists and registrants, along with winners of the Communications Contest, Zia Awards, Scholarships, and Communicator of Achievement, will receive additional notifications. On or before March 21, NMPW will post the winners of all awards and scholarships on its website and on its Facebook Page.

Upon further reflection and consultation of with the Chairs of the Silent Auction, the New Mexico Press Women will not conduct a Silent Auction online as previously contemplated. Rather those wishing to contribute to the Doris Gregory Memorial Scholarship will be given other options to do so.

The Annual Meeting will be conducted by Zoom and members will be sent a link to participate if they so choose by the internet or by telephone on Saturday, 21 March, at 8:30 a.m.

The NMPW Board wishes all its members and supporters good health during this unexpected public health emergency declared by the governor of the State of New Mexico.

  2. Thanks for your thoughtful handling of this troubling situation. I certainly didn’t want to miss the event, but I’m relieved it will be postponed. I congratulate the entire Board for your level-headed handling of this unwanted detour. I also appreciate all the time and effort you expend each year putting on such a conference. I look forward to participating next year, when, God willing, we will all still be intact and immune!
