NMCC’s policy committees are the backbone of our work for New Mexico business.

Twice each year, policy committees–comprised entirely of NMCC member businesses–come together to review  NMCC’s policy priorities, make recommendations, and set the agenda that NMCC’s government affairs team will take to Santa Fe.

All policy committees are open to NMCC members, and members may participate in person, by phone, or by video conference. To join a policy committee, log in to your member account, or contact NMCC by email or at 505-842-0644. You then will be notified of upcoming committee meetings, news, and issues related to your committee’s focus.
