ACI's policy committees are the backbone of our work for New Mexico business.
Twice each year, policy committees--comprised entirely of ACI member businesses--come together to review ACI's policy priorities, make recommendations, and set the agenda that ACI's government affairs team will take to Santa Fe.
All policy committees are open to ACI 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 ACI 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.
