Children's Campaign Board of Directors

The Children’s Campaign Board of Directors is comprised of community leaders from across Colorado. Our diverse mix of members bring content area expertise and functional skills to advance the work of the organization. We value diverse opinions and perspectives and seek to recruit members from across the state and political spectrum, as well as a mix of men and women, different races and ethnic backgrounds, and members with varying life experience. Our Board of Directors meets six times a year with one day-long retreat, usually held in September. The Board of Directors is supported by Colorado Children's Campaign's dedicated staff.
