New Mexico EDGE (Education Designed to Generate Excellence in the public sector) is a program operated through New Mexico Cooperative Extension Service. Extension personnel may know of the program through the NM Extension Professional Certification track, but the program offers so much more. It’s a valuable asset for many of New Mexico’s public-serving professionals with its motto being “Better Government through Education.”
Innovative Media Research and Extension (IMRE) video Pproducers Art Ruiloba and Tomilee Turner collaborated with NM EDGE Proram Director Christy Green and Program Coordinator Esther Fichtelberg to produce a creative 2-minute video that presents an overview of the program and the many certification programs offered to those who serve the public.
The Innovative Media Research and Extension team members were consummate professionals and a pleasure to work with. They went above and beyond to listen to our needs and to create a marketing video that will maintain relevance for years to come. From the initial planning and idea session through the final edit, the process was seamless. I cannot recommend IMRE highly enough and look forward to future collaborations.
