NM Legislative Interim Jobs Council
Three years ago, Speaker Ken Martinez tasked us with coming up with a process for getting the state to full employment by 2024.
Mark Lautman and the CELab are forming the state’s first EB5 regional center that enables foreign nationals to achieve permanent resident status in the U.S. if they invest in a commercial enterprise and plan to create a minimum of 10 full-time jobs for U.S. qualified workers.
Mark Lautman and the CELab are partnering with Move the Mountain (MTM) to pilot the integration of an array of workforce development solutions for the chronically poor and hard to employ.
What People Are Saying
It is a singular honor to lend my voice to the legions of individuals, organizations and communities that have been the beneficiaries of Mark’s deep insight into the fabric of economic development and the drivers that inform healthy cities and regions in this regard.
Mark has been on the front lines of economic development and knows the hard work and collaboration needed to face the many obstacles facing communities and states. His forward leaning insights sound an alarm that economic development efforts must change to meet the challenges of a new era.
Mark’s grasp of the changing national economy and the impact it will have on our local communities was vital to our planning efforts. As equally important in conveying the message was his no-nonsense, conversational speaking style. He was able to effectively connect with a broad spectrum of community members.
