Committees

Email us to get involved and let us know where you think you can help make a difference.

All of our programs and events are run by committees. Whether it’s sourcing speakers, providing direction on study topics or gathering insights to create new models and best practices—these groups serve in numerous roles. And many members find that the more they contribute via committees, the more they get back. If you want to make the most of your Denver membership, and you’re looking to make an impact as a leading industry voice, consider joining a committee. This is a fantastic way to learn, share and connect as you drive content that is shared back to the rest of our members.
