“We are really excited about this upcoming conference,” said NMSU Chancellor Dan Arvizu. “The focus will be on two topics that are widely discussed across New Mexico and the nation: energy and education. We expect to land a solid lineup of speakers as in previous years.”

The 2020 conference will be the 12th event, which is a two-day regional conference that attracts more than 1,000 attendees annually and focuses on significant issues facing the state, nation and world. A list of speakers and topics will be announced when they are confirmed.

The Domenici Institute for Public Policy at NMSU is named after Pete V. Domenici, New Mexico’s longest-serving United States senator who died in 2017. The institute at NMSU was created to continue Domenici’s legacy of service to both the state and the country.

Conference speakers have included the country’s top experts from a variety of sectors such as government and elected officials, including former U.S. senators; U.S. representatives; U.S. cabinet members; U.S. ambassadors and governors; military personnel; scholars; journalists; policy directors; business executives; and political consultants.
