Who We Are

The New Mexico Society of Association Executives is a membership organization comprised of more than 150 association professionals and industry partners, representing over 90 New Mexico-based associations and professional societies. In turn, our member organizations represent tens of thousands of their own members, which means our impact is amplified across a diverse group of industries and professionals covering the entire state of New Mexico.
