New Mexico Chamber Executive’s Association Says “I Know Jo, Do You?”

membersBy Jo Mixon

Chamber Executives From All Over the State of New Mexico

I believe being a member of the New Mexico Chamber Executives Association (NMCEA) is one of the most important affiliations I have made, not only for our chamber, but for myself as well. NMCEA is an organization of chamber executives from across the state, working together to improve the business climate in New Mexico, while developing ways to enhance the quality of life in the communities that we represent. NMCEA provides leadership for chamber employees through its networks and resources. We learn about ways to strengthen our professional development. Our member chambers represent more than 10,000 businesses throughout the state. We meet twice a year for Conferences. The winter conference is always in Albuquerque, hosted by the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce. The summer conference is moveable. We are invited to visit various places all around the state. In January, during Legislation, we meet again in Santa Fe. Plus, on a daily basis, 365 days per year, the members of this group are just emails and phone calls away, joining expertise together with helpful advice and camaraderie.

Last week I traded our mountain for another, to attend the 2014 NMCEA Summer Conference, hosted by the Ruidoso Valley Chamber of Commerce, in Ruidoso. Opening night at conference is fun greeting friends and associates I see only a few times per year and meeting new ones. But it quickly turns serious, as we get to business. Our time is short, so it is always tightly filled with speakers and round tables and workshops. The topics vary and are designed around important information to help equip us with tools to better serve our members. We also keep abreast of what is happening at state level that will have an impact on our businesses. Since the chamber is a voice for your business and we are such a small community, this contact is extremely important for us in Angel Fire.

Last year the NMCEA awarded me a full scholarship to attend the Institute for Organizational Management (IOM). Since 1921, IOM has been the premier nonprofit professional development program for association and chamber professionals, fostering individual growth through interactive learning and networking opportunities. Institute has educated hundreds of thousands of past, current, and future nonprofit leaders from across the country, making it one of the oldest and most highly regarded adult education programs in nonprofit management. I am eternally grateful to NMECA for granting me this scholarship and for my Board of Directors for making the four year commitment for me to continue this education.

State Farm Insurance Wanda Lucero Agency Says “I Know Jo, Do You?”

state-farm-01By Jo Mixon

Wanda Lucero

After my visit with long time Chamber member Wanda Lucero, State Farm Insurance Agency in Taos, I walked away believing her true passion is in the personalized service she provides for her clientele. She says that her clients are more like family. People she really cares about. She loves her job because it doesn’t feel like work. Instead it’s an opportunity to spend her day helping people be prepared for and recover through life events. Since 1982, she has insured parents and their children who are also now the parents! She and her employees are in the business of service.

I learned there are three industries within State Farm and it is much more than just auto insurance. They offer Life Insurance and Annuities, Health Insurance, Disability Insurance, Homeowner, Condo, and Renters Insurance, Business Insurance, Auto Insurance including Sports and Leisure, and a full line of Mutual Funds, Retirement Plans, IRAs, Educational Savings Plans and Banking. I really had no idea State Farm has all of these products.

Wanda is well known and trusted in her field of expertise. I went with her on an assessment for a damage claim and saw first hand the connection she has with her clients. She personally inspects every home she insures, including those in Angel Fire and the Moreno Valley.

Locally born and raised, she is also very passionate about the community. She serves on the Boards of the Taos Community Foundation and Taos Entrepreneurial Network. She is an active member of the Association of Commerce and Industry, the Taos Chamber of Commerce and the Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce.

Her third passion, but probably the first, is her family. She is the very proud mother of two daughters, a son and two granddaughters. Her face lights up when she speaks about them!
