The Business Impact Committee is an information sharing committee that meets on a monthly basis to explore issues, events and activities that have or could have an influence and impact on living, working, and even playing in the Alamogordo-Holloman AFB area. Such issues might include economic, political, social, educational issues or a combination of all. Each month a speaker is invited to share his or her area of expertise, and the information is presented in an informal, relaxed atmosphere. Such presentations often lead to related areas of discussion and committee action if required. Statistical information that might impact living and working in our area and the current calendar of events are also reviewed.

Its mission is also to provide support and networking opportunities to established and new businesses in Alamogordo through promotions, seminars, and special events.
