Brewery Scene Makes Big Impact In NM;
Site Tour and Info Make a Great Combo
Members and guests of the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico gathered on a Wednesday afternoon in November to hear the state's only Advanced Cicerone (the brewing industry's most highly regarded beer connoisseur) speak about the burgeoning industry, and heard how Central New Mexico Community College's programs train students for success in this field.
Asa Stone, Ph.D., stated, "I elevate appreciation for the role of beer in society through science, education, and advocacy," Stone said. Next up Victoria Martinez, CNM's Director of the Brewing and Beverage Management program, rallied the troops on the many offerings the college has which are specific to this industry.
Next, Bosque's Experience Manager, Ezekiel Gomez, lead the tour of the multi-faceted manufacturing facility. Product sampling and networking followed. Many folks lingered to enjoy Bosque's great food and enjoyed relaxed networking.
In 2017 New Mexico experienced a $340 million economic impact attributed to craft beers and produced 85,230 barrels. That impact continues to grow, providing jobs and economic development for the city and the state.

Dec 18 Executive Director
As a 501c6 non-profit organization, the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico has done a great job over the years in efficiently managing our assets. We have given almost $100,000.00 in money to programs at the University of New Mexico and Central New Mexico Community College with the goal of supporting the educational programs which provide the training the facility managers and technicians of the future will need to be successful at their jobs.
Thank you to the conscientious efforts of the members of my Board of Directors in making this possible. President Tom Plummer with the Indian Health Service has very efficiently and enthusiastically continued to lead the group, and a new director, John Dufay, who oversees maintenance and operations for the Albuquerque Public Schools has already provided insight and guidance in his brief tenure on the Board.
My other Board members contribute countless hours into making this look effortless. Your treasurers, Lori Gunnare from National Roofing and Dave Jensen from the RE Michel Company, balance the books, deal with the on-line payment issues, assure with compliance with our state charter, and so much more. Secretary Kevin Givens with The Johnston Company keeps us on track with an accuracy tempered with humor.
Micaela Sandoval with Moving Solutions and Mike Chavez of Ace Asphalt supply program guidance. We are glad that Jessica Leyva from Honeywell enthusiastically participates, too. Board members Christi Zimmerman with Cort Furniture and Megan Roensch from TP Pump continue to reliably guide the organization. Of course, we cannot forget to say thank you to our webmaster, Roy Evans, who provides the technical support which shapes our presence in cyberspace and who takes professional photographs at our events.
Each person has selflessly given hours of time to the group, realizing that this directly supports the scholarship funds at the two schools, thus changing lives. 2019 is looking good too! Thank you for your belief in us, and YOUR support.
