2014 NMPW Conference Taking Shape

As hosts of the 2014 NMPW conference, the LCPW chapter has been working with various hotels to gather information. While we considered locations such as Truth or Consequences/Elephant Butte and Ruidoso, we decided to host the conference at the Hotel Encanto in Las Cruces.

The details are still being confirmed, but we want to give you a heads-up so you can mark your calendar and plan to attend.

The 2014 Conference will be a one-day event on Saturday, April 26, with optional pre- and post-conference activities.

Here’s the tentative schedule:

NMPW Board meeting:   10:30 a.m.
Zia Awards Luncheon:  12 noon – 1:30 p.m.
Membership meeting: 1:40 – 2:30 p.m.
Workshop 1:  2:45 – 4 p.m.
Workshop 2:   4:10 – 5:30 p.m.
Social/Silent Auction:  6 – 6:30 p.m.
Banquet:  6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

We are arranging a optional Friday night cultural experience. You can attend the performance of “The Misanthropes” at the new NMSU Center for the Arts. Tickets are $17 for adults and $14 for seniors. The theatre can be combined with dinner at a local restaurant.

We are trying to arrange a post-conference tour of Spaceport America for Sunday morning. More details about this are forthcoming.
