Selected applicants will fulfill a three-year term which will run from July 1 through June 20, 2027. The Board serves staggered terms, meets monthly and periodically reports to the Board of County Commissioners, recommends changes or informs about upcoming challenges and opportunities in the airport’s operations or administration.

All Airport Advisory Board meetings comply with the New Mexico Open Meetings Act, which means they are open to the public and the agendas for regular and special meetings are available to the public, at least 72 hours prior to each meeting. They are posted on the County’s website.
