One of the 10 Safest Places in New Mexico ~ movoto.com
Come learn what we are doing to get people into local jobs at the Aztec Chamber Luncheon. Four Corners Economic Development is leading the way for San Juan County as we becomethe “1st Certified ACT Work Ready Community in New Mexico”. You have heard of ACT and the testing High Schoolers do for college placement, but have you heard about ACT’s WorkKeys skills testing for employees and how you can use it to fill your hard to keep employee positions?
It's also a great networking opportunity and a way to learn more about one of our local Chambers of Commerce.
Lunch will be catered by The Bistro. $10 a person for members, $15 a person for non-members.
Summer is in Full Swing!
The Aztec Chamber of commerce assisted with the Grand Opening & Ribbon Cutting for the Aztec Municipal Golf Course at Hidden Valley on June 13. The entire Aztec City Commission was there for the Ribbon Cutting and to Tee off together during the festivities! We enjoyed hamburgers and hotdogs by Ruby’s in the Valley as we sat on the patio and enjoyed the beautiful weather. If you haven’t been out to see the course, the trip is well worth it! With the additional rains this year and maintenance work done by City of Aztec crews the course is in beautiful shape and the greenery is breath taking. Just be careful the hummingbirds don’t take you out as they buzz around the flower baskets on the patio!
