Shirley leading the meeting
David Campbell
Dan and David Dance! 

An Informative Double Feature...

Our very special guest presenter this past Thursday was David Campbell, who currently serves as Chief Counsel of Mesa Del Sol, LLC, a master planned commercial, industrial, and residential community in Albuquerque, NM. He is a 35-year member of the NM State Bar, practicing municipal and real estate law, in the private and public sectors.  David spoke to us about the progress at Mesa Del Sol and the rapid expansion of Netflix... and also a proposal to merge the Albuquerque city and county governments.  

Vice President Shirley Anderson did a great job leading the meeting while Brad, Wayne and Bill were still on their amazing adventure trip to the Sturgis Motorcycle rally.
