SWW Meeting Location

Starting with our annual meeting on October 2, 2021, SouthWest Writers returned to in-person gatherings at a new location: UNM Continuing Education (UNM-CE). We meet on the second Saturday of every month and the fourth Wednesday. Our Saturday meetings (10:00 am – noon) include a Zoom component, but our Wednesday night meetings (6:30 – 8:30 pm) are strictly online. Go to our Meetings page for upcoming presentations.

UNM-CE is located at 1634 University Blvd NE, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87131. This is a few blocks north of Lomas Blvd on the east side of the street next to the old Masonic Lodge. There is easy access from all directions and parking is free on both sides of the building. (See the map at the bottom of this page.)
We will be using Room C in the North building, which is on the north side of the building. It will be set up classroom style with a lot of space between seats, so everyone will have a surface to write on. Big TV screens and a drop-down projection screen will display the speakers.

Upon Arrival: The SWW business table will be staffed for those wanting to renew their membership or pay for upcoming workshops and classes. We’ll also have examples of SWAG items available.
Food: We will NOT have tables set out for community food, however, everyone can bring their own covered drink and something to eat for themselves. There are vending machines in the building.
Smoking and Alcoholic Beverages are NOT allowed in the building.
WiFi: Anyone attending events/classes may utilize UNM-CE WiFi. Within the building the WiFi is Lobo Guest. Lobo Guest requires no password, but the user needs to open a web browser when they connect. The browser should automatically redirect to the Terms of Service Page, where the user must consent to UNM’s Use Policies.
Parking for Those with Disabilities: Please leave the parking spaces at the northern end close to the building for those dealing with disabilities. This allows them to easily enter through the north door, which is closer to our room. All others should enter via the main entrance facing west.
Book Sales: SWW authors may bring their books to sell at Saturday in-person meetings at UNM Continuing Ed. Book table(s) will be set up and ready for displaying books. The table(s) will NOT be manned, so authors will make your own sales.
Successes and Announcements: Time is set aside for SWW members to share successes and announcement both in person and via Zoom. If you’re at the meeting, line up when we call for announcements. If you’re watching via Zoom, place your name in the chat room and you’ll be called on when it’s time to share.
