The New Mexico Business Coalition (NMBC) is pleased to invite you to a BASH (Business and Social Hour) on July 19th!

We will also have a presentation by journalist turned media analyst, Mark Mathis. Mark studied our use of oil for ten years and what he found shocked him so much he made a movie called ‘spOILed’.

The oil and gas industry is a key economic driver in New Mexico which frequently leads to debate among policymakers and voters. Mark’s comments on what he believes is misinformation, distortions, and outright lies about the industry are sure to generate some great discussion! Be a part of that discussion on July 19th!

Introductions of elected, appointed and those running for office begin at 5:10 pm. Limited Seating, RSVP today
