Carol Linder honored as the 2016 IMPACT! Award winner

NMNWSE honors the outstanding successes of Carol Linder, Ph.D.; the New Mexico Highlands University Interim Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, and Professor of Cell Biology. Carol received the 2016 IMPACT! Award at the NMNWSE annual symposium in October in Albuquerque, NM.

We would also like to thank all who nominated someone and recognize all who were nominated. It makes one proud to learn of the many accomplishments and contributions of these outstanding New Mexico women.

NMNWSE Has New Mailing Address

NMNWSE's new address is:
    PO Box 51926
    Albuquerque, NM 87181

We are in the process of converting this website to reflect the new address, but please be aware it may take a while. The old mailing address will be kept active for one year to allow the new address to get established before closing the old PO box. This step was taken as for the last several years the majority of Board Members have been from Central Chapter, which is the most active chapter. Having the Network address in Albuquerque should improve the speed we process mail to the Network.
