New Mexico Association of Regional Councils: Partnerships, Progress and Promise

The National Association of Development Organizations assisted the New Mexico Association of Regional Councils with the development of this impact report. The report, first published in January 2007 and updated in January 2009, profiles the statewide impact of the numerous programs and projects that the association’s member organizations have developed and implemented. It also highlights the many partnerships forged between the councils and local and state government to provide valuable services to the surrounding communities. It gives detailed examples of specific projects and their impacts as well as a list of programs and services that the seven New Mexico regional councils offer to their region.
