As the 2023 legislative session approaches, we want to invite you to participate in the Colorado Chamber of Commerce’s Policy Councils. Councils offer a unique opportunity for Colorado Chamber members to add their expertise to our policymaking and influence legislation and regulations that impact business. Council meetings provide an open and frank dialogue between our members, key legislators, and state agency leaders. The following Councils are available to all our members:

  • Energy and Environment Council
  • HealthCare Council
  • Labor and Employment Council
  • Governmental Affairs Council
  • Tax Council

Each Council will meet at Noon, unless otherwise noted, at the Colorado Chamber of Commerce office throughout the session. Lunch is served at each meeting. Sponsorship of council meetings by our members is crucial to maintaining the practice of providing lunch during these important council meetings. We need sponsors for every meeting, so we would like to encourage members to sign up now to sponsor a lunch! Sponsors receive recognition in both email reminders for the meeting and our online events calendar, as well as during the meeting. The Colorado Chamber of Commerce does all of the ordering and setup of the lunch, and the sponsorship is always a flat rate of $800Please contact Laura Moss at [email protected] or (303) 866-9652 for more details or to sign up as a sponsor. We appreciate your ongoing support!

Please see the below for specific dates for each council. Councils always meet from Noon to 1:15 p.m., unless otherwise noted, in our conference room at 1600 Broadway, Suite 1000.
