Councilors Henderson and Juan Oropesa greeted NMML conference attendees and gave them gift bags. Bill Fulginiti, NMML executive director, said Roswell is a “great place” to hold NMML’s 61st annual conference, and he appreciated the progress being made with the RCCC. Fulginiti said the annual meeting of all city officials is hosted for policy-setting and to determine a legislative agenda for the upcoming year, while also learning about new topics. He said it is estimated that 550 officials will have attended by the end of the conference. Romero said State Sen. Daniel Ivey-Soto will be a guest speaker during the mayor and governing body caucus, and will discuss the new election act.

The NMML conference offers lectures to benefit personnel from municipalities statewide, from employees to elected officials. Aside from the informative sessions, attendees have the option to participate in unique Roswell events like the painting park, golf at the Nancy Lopez Golf Course, or a 5K run or 3K walk on the Spring River Walking Trail through the end of the conference on Friday.
