NMSU?s Domenici Conference announces change to second-day schedule

Organizers of the 2014 Domenici Public Policy Conference, hosted by New Mexico State University and set for Sept. 17 and 18 at the Las Cruces Convention Center, have announced a change to the schedule for one speaker on the conference?s second day.


To accommodate an unexpected scheduling conflict, N.M. Gov. Susana Martinez, who is seeking reelection in November, will now speak at 8:15 a.m., following the day?s opening remarks.

Democratic gubernatorial challenger and N.M. Attorney General Gary King will speak at 12:45 as previously scheduled, and the conference will conclude at 1:30 p.m.

Doors will now open at 7 a.m. on Sept. 18 at the convention center, 680 E. University Ave., and the program will begin at 8 a.m.

The schedule for Sept. 17 is unchanged, and all previously announced speakers are still scheduled to appear. If you have already registered for the conference, no further action is needed.

Other speakers at the conference include former U.S. Secretary of Defense and former CIA Director Leon Panetta, former U.S. counterintelligence head and inspector general of the National Security Agency Joel Brenner and national political strategists Donna Brazile and Charlie Black, among others.
