Rocking the Roundhouse
Chad Smith, CEO
It’s here! The 60-day legislative session is in full swing and New Mexico Farm and Livestock Bureau stands ready to advocate for your livelihood. As we promote legislation that would enhance local food production, we also find ourselves needing to oppose proposed bills that would hamper a way of life for our state’s farmers and ranchers. And we need your help. Our members are our greatest strength and our grassroots structure makes us even stronger, helping to amplify our voice in the roundhouse. Now we have a new hammer in the advocacy toolbox that provides our members a platform to engage and advocate on issues that are important to New Mexico Agriculture. This tool will save you time and provide the resources and information you need to make your voice heard. If you are a member, and we have an email address for you, you will begin to receive emails from firstname.lastname@example.org that will provide you quick and easy access to our advocacy campaigns. You may also visit our website at www.nmflb.org, enter your member number, and click on the “Take Action” tab to view our current advocacy campaigns or sign up to receive alerts. I encourage you to engage and embrace the advocacy tool. When you receive those emails, take a brief moment to follow the link and send a message to your senator, representative or congressional delegate on issues that are important to our industry. Let’s rock the Roundhouse and make our voices heard!
