Various researchers, labor force experts, health data professionals, UNM and state agency personnel, and Census representatives will present topics that range from basic Census skills to occupation projections, accessing health data, and using resource Geographic Information Systems mapping.

A draft agenda will be available at the end of August. However, here is an early preview of some of the speakers:

BBER is working with the Albuquerque Small Business Development Center to move the conference to a new location this year. The conference will be at the CNM Workforce Training Center, which is just off of I-25. Take the Alameda exit and head west to San Mateo Blvd., turning north to Eagle Rock Avenue (Google map). This venue will allow us to try a few breakouts in a hands-on computer lab.

Registration fee is $55 per person and includes all materials, continental breakfast, beverage breaks and lunch. Registration can be accomplished by completing the UNM Marketplace Credit Card System. Additionally, a hard copy registration which can be mailed or faxed will be available in the near future.
