Chair’s Roundtable


The Chair’s Roundtable is for senior leaders of eligible member companies who care about how state government policies affect their business and who want to engage with topic experts and other business leaders in substantive dialogue about these policies.

Recently, the group discussed, “The Role of Corporate Social Responsibility in Driving Business Value” with a tremendous panel of industry leaders:

  • Kate Swayne Wilson, Director of Sustainability, Vail Resorts Management Company
  • Kathleen Pitre, Vice President, Communications and Corporate Relations, Ball Corporation
  • Kim Marotta, Global Senior Director of Sustainability, MillerCoors
  • Pete Dignan, CEO, Ever Better

This select group meets four times per year with The Colorado Chamber’s Chair, The Colorado Chamber’s President and CEO, Chuck Berry, former Speaker of the Colorado House of Representatives, and key governmental officials. The Chair’s Roundtable will discuss everything from critical issues in the legislature to ideas and questions brought to the meeting by Chair’s Roundtable members.  Past special guests include: Richard Scharf, CEO of Visit Denver together with Cathy Ritter, Executive Director of the Colorado Tourism Office; Speakers of the Colorado House of Representatives; Alison Felix, Denver Branch Executive, Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City; Attorney General John Suthers (now Mayor of Colorado Springs); political analyst Floyd Ciruli, economist and columnist Dave Maney; “Rising Star” legislators; former Governors Bill Owens and Dick Lamm; Rob Katz, CEO of Vail Resorts.

At least one meeting will be held during the Colorado General Assembly’s session when lawmaking action is at its peak. The Chair’s Roundtable may be strategically called upon to contact legislators or testify regarding proposed legislation and regulation. The Colorado Chamber will look to the Chair’s Council for future Board members.
