Leadership Group


The Manufacturing Leadership Group is the advisory board to CACI’s Colorado Manufacturing Initiative.  The executive-level group represents small, mid-size, large and global manufacturers across a wide swath of industry sectors.

The MLG meets quarterly to discuss common interests and goals, determine actions for private sector solutions, monitor and assess the progress of the Initiative and acts as a stakeholder group for policy discussion.
