Manufacturer’s Leadership Group


About Us

Manufacturing builds America. For decades, the nation’s top leaders have recognized the power of a strong manufacturing sector on our economy and our communities.

CACI has a long history in the Colorado manufacturing community.  In 1965, CACI was formed by the merger of the then State Chamber of Commerce and the State Manufacturer’s Association.  Since then, CACI has remained the Colorado affiliate for the National Association of Manufacturers and is proud to count many of Colorado’s prominent manufacturers among its members.

What is CACI’s Manufacturer’s Leadership Group?

man.programsCACI’s Manufacturer’s Leadership Group offers focused sector support to CACI’s Member Manufacturers and to the Colorado manufacturing community.  With the support of CACI’s various policy councils the Manufacturer’s Leadership Group [MLG] is able to suggest and support proactive policy and legislation that strengthens Colorado manufacturing.

The MLG meets quarterly to discuss common interests and goals, determine actions for private sector solutions, and acts as a stakeholder group for policy discussion. The executive-level group represents small, mid-size, large and global manufacturers across a wide swath of industry sectors. These meetings include a tour of a manufacturing facility and a roundtable discussion that provides legislative updates. Special guests that have attended in the past include Congressional Staff as well as local and state government representatives. The purpose of these discussions foster better working relationships between state and local governments and manufacturers within their communities.

Interested in hosting an MLG meeting and tour at your facility? Contact Lalitha Christian, Manager of Membership Programs and Communications at (303) 866.9635.
