Message from the President
Dr. Harold Baily, Ph, D.


Dear members and supporters,

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for allowing me to serve the NAACP, Albuquerque Branch. I will again represent the branch with dignity and respect and will follow the direction of the executive board for the best interest of the organization and the community at large.

I embrace the challenge to preserve and protect the civil rights of all people. The Albuquerque Branch, founded in 1915, is one of the oldest chapters of the NAACP.

I will work with other groups to form partnerships and coalitions to address similar problems. I strongly believe there must be a collective strategy to address common adverse situations.

In addition, this administration is committed to enhancing the rich history of the Albuquerque Branch and working with unity and purpose.
