The October meeting of the High Tech Consortium (HTC) of Southern New Mexico will be on the 24th of October [Wednesday], from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Arrowhead Center [located at 3655 Research Drive, Genesis Center, Building C, on the campus of New Mexico State University]. Free to attend.

This month’s speaker is Tracey Bryan, President and CEO of The Bridge of Southern New Mexico, and the topic will be “Developing Dona Ana County's Workforce to Drive Economic Development.” Thanks to the passion and commitment of a growing set of cross-sector partners on the Workforce Talent Collaborative, a clear plan and path to a comprehensive approach to workforce development has emerged that can transform the future of the region by boosting the earning potential of its citizens. The plan harnesses the collective assets already in place and identifies the gaps that need to be filled for us to build a ready, highly-skilled workforce that will drive short and long-term economic development for us all.

For more than 25 years, Tracey has had the privilege of serving in ground-breaking and industry-leading work for non- and for-profit entities. She is a proven leader in building strong relationships among public-private, cross-disciplinary groups to cultivate a shared vision and mobilize action. She currently leads one of New Mexico’s most successful collective impact initiatives – The Bridge of Southern New Mexico. This business-led, education-focused partnership ignited the vision that led to New Mexico’s first Early College High School and cultivated a community focus on increasing high school graduation rates – which now outpace the state at 80%.

HTC membership meetings are open to the public. Anyone interested in growing technology in southern New Mexico is encouraged to attend. There is no charge for attending. For more information please call the HTC President, Dr. Ed Pines, at 575-646-2730, or Terry Jack 720-201-7344.
