The Aztec Chamber of Commerce sends a heartfelt thank you to our Chamber Members and the citizens of Aztec, NM and the Four Corners for attending the “Jazz It Up” Award Banquet benefiting the Aztec Chamber of Commerce presented by Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham and Aztec Urgent Care.

Your dollars will help:

·         support you as members with your new membership benefit package

·         evolve and elevate our existing events to attract larger crowds to Aztec which means “shop local” helping to increase your bottom line

·         allow us to be a voice in the City of Aztec for you and your business

We were so excited to almost double the amount of attendees over last year.  Thank you or your support! The synergy was great, the crowd had fun and the 20’s attire was memorable! We are already working towards next year’s event and we promise it will be unforgettable!

Aside from bringing together our Chamber Members, our purpose for coming together each year at our annual banquet is to celebrate those whose commitment to their city and community goes without saying.  They are involved, dedicated, cause-oriented, great servants, they have purpose, they are empowered and they love what they do. We would like to congratulate our three heroes for 2015:

Business of the Year – Attorney, T. Ryan Lane

Citizen of the Year – Mike Paschall

The Aztec Chamber of Commerce is not part of the City of Aztec. The Chamber does not receive funding from the City of Aztec with the exception of their annual membership. The work we do and its support is based solely on your chamber membership dues and the Chamber’s fundraising events. We felt it was important for you to know that as our role is to be your voice in so many levels.
