Attending the NMCS in Santa FE, NM presents some unique concerns.  

HISTORY: At the 2019 NMCS in Denver, CO, an MOU in support of social justice was created among the Member Partners. The result was to use our NMCS patronage in support of a deserving community. The consensus was to take the NMCS to Indian Country and benefit a tribal community. To that end, the 2024 NMCS is being held in Santa Fe, NM at the Hilton Buffalo Thunder Resort and Conference Center. This beautiful venue, although somewhat remote, is fully owned by the Pueblo of Pojoaque. Thus your patronage of the NMCS will help to benefit the Pueblo of Pojoaque and surrounding community.

Location & Transportation: The Buffalo Thunder Resort is located approximately 15 minutes outside of Santa Fe, NM. Although the location is dramatically beautiful, there are few options for transportation aside from a private vehicle. For this reason, the NMCS team strongly suggests that attendees consider flying into ABQ (Albuquerque, NM). We are also in the process of arranging a scheduled shuttle service to and from the ABQ/ Sunport Airport in Albuquerque. Santa Fe has a very small regional airport and provides few options. Please check back later for more details and information regarding NMCS shuttle service to/from ABQ.

The NMCS facilitation team is also considering offering additional options for your convenience.
