TBD Colorado to hold final summit in Springs

Colorado Springs will host the final round of public input for TBD Colorado, a statewide group gathering information about some of Colorado’s largest issues.

The summit is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 23 at Berger Hall at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. Summits are also scheduled for the Mt. Princeton and Mt. Yale ballrooms at the Denver Children’s Hospital of Colorado and in Greeley at the Panorama Room at the University of Northern Colorado.

 

While the Denver summit is full, attendees are encouraged to register on the TBD Colorado website at www.TBDColorado.org, because space is limited. Detailed information will be emailed to participants after registration.

 

The summits will build on the work of the April and May statewide regional meetings. Participants will refine priorities and consider policy options relating to education, health, transportation, the state budget and the state workforce, among other issues raised throughout the process.

 

Policy recommendations developed by TBD Colorado participants will be reported to the General Assembly, the governor, other state leaders and all Coloradans in December. The report will be posted on the website.

 

 

TBD Colorado is a nonpartisan, collaborative effort designed to create informed and constructive conversations among Coloradans about some of the biggest issues facing the state: education, health, transportation, the state budget and the state workforce.

TBD Colorado is a private nonprofit organization governed by a nonpartisan volunteer board of directors. No state dollars are being spent on TBD Colorado.
