One of the main goals of NMCDE is to promote training opportunities and professional development for District employees.  At the 2014 Annual Meeting, the membership voted to use NMCDE profits from dues to use for a training stipend available to all members.  If your District does not have the funds to send you to a training or conference, you are eligible for up to $150 per year for reimbursement of registration or travel expenses.  In 2017 this stipend was used to help 16 district employees attend the Certified Procurement Officer (CPO) Recertification Training from New Mexico Edge on June 28th in Albuquerque.  We hope to support even more employee training in 2018. 

If any of you have suggestions, volunteer assistance, questions, comments or concerns you would like to offer, please contact one of your officers or member of the Board of Directors (who are the Regional Representatives).
