The CACI EXECs Advocacy Program wrapped up its fifth year with a one-of-a-kind graduation event at CACI Mission Trustee MillerCoors on October 3rd in Golden.

Guest speakers included Craig Poupore, Vice President of MillerCoors’ Golden Valley Operations, Shannon Ambrosio, Senior Manager Brewing Materials and Malting, as well as Gloria Schoch, 2015 EXECs alum & Community Affairs at MillerCoors.

Rhonda Sparlin, the Colorado’s Chamber Incoming Board Chair, and Partner at Rubin Brown, addressed the graduating class and thanked them for their dedication to helping sustain a pro-business Colorado.
