Looking for a great conversation on green building and green living in Las Cruces, New Mexico? Look no further than New Mexico State University’s 2009 Great Conversations Event! This year Bob Pofahl will be facilitating one of the many conversation at the fundraising dinner for students in NMSU’s Honors College. The event will take place from 6-9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8, at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum outdoor patio.
The event helps fund scholarships for some of the best and brightest students at NMSU, a group sometimes overlooked when it comes to financial aid. “I think it’s a great opportunity to support NMSU while learning new things,” said Bob Pofahl, CEO of Picacho Mountain, a Las Cruces, New Mexico based development company. “Higher education is one of the great engines for our economy and this event directly serves that area.”
Pofahl will lead a conversation of green building and green homes in New Mexico, an area that he says makes sense both economically and socially.
Picacho Mountain is Southern New Mexico only Build Green New Mexico certified community and features new custom homes in Las Cruces. Many of the homes at Picacho Mountain are Build Green New Mexico certified. The Willows Patio Homes at Picacho Mountain are all built to Build Green New Mexico certification standards as well.
More than 25 different table conversations are planned for this event on a variety of topic, including the dangers in Juarez, building leaders for tomorrow, secrets of the Da Vinci Code, the enigma of Shakespeare and a conversation about the National Parks Service.
This year, there will be no minimum seating requirements for tables, meaning everyone who attends the dinner is guaranteed the conversation they choose.
Tickets for the event cost $65 each. A donation of $50 allows an honors student to attend the dinner free of charge. Contact Bob Pofahl at Picacho Mountain for more information. You may also call the Honors College at New Mexico State University at (575) 646-4033.
