(Albuquerque, New Mexico) The Anderson School of Management at the University of New Mexico is pleased to announce that Mickey Byrd, manager of the Management Development Center (MDC), has been chosen as one of the participants in this year’s “Leadership Albuquerque” class.
“This is a highly selective program, so it’s a real honor for Mickey,” said Interim Dean Amy Wohlert. “It’s also an honor and benefit for Anderson, since it gives us a great chance, through Mickey, to communicate with our community.”

The Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce Leadership Albuquerque program was developed more than 25 years ago to enhance the skills and enrich the understanding of current as well as aspiring volunteer community leaders. Each year, nearly 50 people are chosen for the program, all of whom have demonstrated their willingness to give their time and effort in working for Albuquerque.

Leadership Albuquerque brings together emerging leaders from across the community to participate in the projects and interactions that result in a shared vision for the greater Albuquerque area. The program, designed for mid to senior level executives from the private, public and voluntary sectors of Albuquerque, is eight months long.
