New Mexico woman to lead mothers’ advocacy group
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A nonprofit group that advocates on behalf of mothers across the U.S. has tapped New Mexico’s tourism secretary to be its next leader.
American Mothers Inc. announced Friday that Rebecca Latham will assume the role of chief executive officer on Jan. 1. Latham served as the state’s tourism boss under outgoing Gov. Susana Martinez.
Latham has been a member of American Mothers’ board of directors since April 2017.
Before being appointed tourism secretary in 2015, she served as the agency’s communication director and was previously the director of tourism and economic development in the northern New Mexico community of Red River.
Latham’s new duties will include growing a philanthropic initiative that supports other nonprofit organizations that help women and children.
