Recognizing Employee Volunteerism

PNM employees have a long history of donating their time, talents and money in the communities where they live and work. We are proud to recognize these contributions each year with Volunteer Excellence Awards. Each year, PNM supports communities across New Mexico through more than 700 employees volunteering in company supported or individual community events, including our annual Day of Service. Our employees also donate thousands of dollars to the United Way programs across the entire state of New Mexico annually.

Volunteer Excellence Awards

Volunteer Excellence Awards recognize employees who volunteer their personal time in the community. Employees are nominated by the nonprofits they worked with during the year. Two employees were recognized in New Mexico for 2017, and a $1,000 donation was made in their honor to the nominating nonprofit.
