Ms. Riojas offered this welcome to conference participants:

Bienvenidas! Once again, we celebrate as our organization gathers leaders from across the country to discuss, to learn, to share, and to grow as individuals and as a community. We are excited to come to the Land of Enchantment. You cannot visit Santa Fe without having the sense of a higher spirit and that the beauty of the land, the skies, the mountains, and the people will stay with you forever. Join us in celebrating two days and a half of “hermanidad,” making new friends, getting reacquainted with longtime friends and communicating with us.

NWHM congratulates MANA on a successful conference. The Museum is proud to support the activities of National Coalition member organizations such as MANA.
