*IMMEDIATE REQUEST FOR UNM ARCHITECTURE DESIGN CONTEST JUDGES*

This Monday, November 23, UNM Architecture and Electrical Engineering 
department students will submit entries to compete as part of an 
NMSEA-sponsored solar home design contest. Students have been working on 
project entries for this competition all semester. Architectural design 
submissions will be judged Monday, with Engineering entry judging at a 
session on a later date.

If you have an architectural background, please consider judging 
students' entries Monday at 11am, UNM School of Architecture & Planning. 
Or simply attend the judging to show your support. To volunteer as a 
judge, please contact the design competition's coordinator, Steve Dent 
directly at: sddent at unm.edu <mailto:sddent at unm.edu>.

NMSEA will donate money for winning competition entries, and hopes to 
see the best solar designs win. Student design submissions are of 
excellent quality and judging can really be a great experience. Your 
assistance and support of this event will be greatly appreciated by both 
NMSEA and UNM.

*NM ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT RELEASES GOVERNOR'S GREEN JOBS REPORT *

Governor Richardson and NM's Green Jobs Cabinet recently released a 
report 
<http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?et=1102792889673&s=2977&e=001hJW9PV_2mEM2RN_oHAModf2vlukHIKOooinJkn7CK7dbnv7_C7my8vJfCC_t49RarcuQ4J-LxjuDZ0SRYUAKIj8qkRyJ5Lppd-H6bpD6iDljux_jBucsWGRfWiMWA7rBMHZtOcVHpgdCLcD_5ubgRx9ly36lU3Wm0nOW-kcXukI=> 
entitled "New Mexico's Green Economy: Capitalizing on Assets and 
Opportunity." The report provides an overview of New Mexico's green 
economy with a statewide strategic plan for clean technology economic 
development. It outlines five key strategies to grow New Mexico's green 
economy with recommendations to achieve them. 

NM Green Jobs Cabinet's goals are to:

   1. Be the leader in renewable energy export
   2. Be the center of the North American solar industry by making New
      Mexico the "Solar Valley" of the United States
   3. Lead the nation in green grid innovation
   4. Be a center of excellence for green building and energy efficiency
   5. Have a highly skilled and ready-to-work workforce

The Green Jobs Cabinet was formed by Governor Bill Richardson in January 
2009 to promote New Mexico's green economy. The Cabinet report seeks to 
utilize New Mexico's resources to create new green jobs both in rural 
and urban communities, as well as ensure that New Mexicans are trained 
and prepared to succeed in these jobs.  The Green Jobs Cabinet has 
already begun the process of developing a detailed plan for implementing 
the goals of the report, with definitive milestones, timetables and 
benchmarks for action.
