Mr. Tonjes will be talking about the growing Albuquerque economy, what the city's plans are to grow our economy, and how. He will discuss trends and upcoming events that will have economic impact to the greater Albuquerque are.
Come and learn about new and growing businesses in Albuquerque (where new jobs are). As accounting and finance professionals, we need to be aware of what's going on in our local market in order to stay competitive/in business. We also need to know what incentives are available, and how that applies to their current business that they work at/own in order to take full advantage of all NM/ABQ has to offer.
He has been leading AED since 1994 to grow our economy. AED is a nonprofit economic development organization that recruits out-of-state firms to the Albuquerque metropolitan area and help local businesses expand. Tempur-Pedic, Eclipse Aviation, PR Newswire, Fidelity and Schott Solar are some of the companies AED has successfully recruited to Albuquerque.
