This Virtual Roundhouse is a joint effort of the New Mexico Chamber of Commerce, the New Mexico Hospitality Association, the Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce, and the New Mexico Chamber Executives Association. You can register and attend the event at www.virtualroundhousenm.com. According to a press release, the Virtual Roundhouse platform will kick-off on Monday, January 11 from 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM with presentations from industry leaders, department secretaries, and legislative leadership from both chambers and parties.
The public will have the opportunity to meet with legislators during virtual office hours, visit virtual booths during the Business Expo, and attend a Business Day conference and a Trend Conference. Community groups are also able to host social calendar events such as Early Childhood Day and Ag Day. The Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce is also very involved and will be using this opportunity to tell everyone about what our community has to offer.
This is certainly not the same as visiting the Roundhouse in person, but any product that allows members of access to the legislative process is a positive development.
