2020 EXECs Cohort Celebrated the End of Their Program

After 10 months and nearly 600 traveled miles, the 2020 EXECs Cohort officially celebrated the end of their program with a tour and awards ceremony at Laws Whiskey House on October 9, 2019. The group had an active year visiting the Capitol building and eight different companies that represented seven distinct industries. Collectively, the companies hosting a 2019 EXECs program employ nearly 13,000 people and have a financial impact of 10.8 billion dollars. It was quite an honor to discuss legislation and industry details with leaders whose companies are making such a great economic impact on the local and global economies. Details for the 2020 EXECs Advocacy Program will be sent to your membership representative next week.

Thank you to these 2019 host companies:

Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center
