Region 9 Education Cooperative

Message from the Executive Director

Region 9 and the work we do continues to make me proud. One of my favorite things to do each evening is to write down one positive thing that happened that day. One conversation, one event, or one opportunity to help another Region 9 employee. 

It’s Aspenfest in Ruidoso this month. This is always an interesting time of year for the business office. New Mexico law requires that as a state agency we have an annual audit of our fiscal operations. This is referred to as the single audit act. Regional education cooperatives must have their audits completed and submitted to the state auditor’s office by September 30. Our contracted auditors have completed the audit, conducted the required exit interview with the vice-chair of our coordinating council, and are submitting the audit within the required timeline. I will present more detailed information once the state auditor has finalized and released the audit. 

Region 9 proud! We launch the first ever R9 University this month - a team of Region 9 employees will participate in three work sessions that will include Region 9 history, budget, strategic planning, and culture.
