CCI Foundation’s Winter Conference

Brings Together 400 County Leaders

            Colorado’s largest annual gathering of county government leaders took place November 26-28, 2018 in El Paso County as more than 400 delegates participated in the Winter Conference of Colorado Counties, Inc. (CCI) Foundation in Colorado Springs.

Colorado Governor-elect Jared Polis spoke at a special general session on the first day of the conference, outlining his vision for the state, including looking at all possible ways (except those ballot measures rejected by voters in the November election) to fix the state’s chronic transportation problems.

State demographer Elizabeth Garner provided insights into Colorado’s changing demographics, with special emphasis on the aging population and the importance of the 2020 Census; and political insiders Mary Kay Hogan (The Fulcrum Group) and Joey Bunch (Colorado Politics) addressed the impacts on counties of the recent elections, noting that voters generally favored local control over state mandates, citing the defeat of a statewide ballot measure that would have restricted oil and gas development. 

            CCI honored individual achievement during the conference, including naming Ben Tisdel of Ouray County as its 2018 Commissioner of the Year; presenting its 2018 Distinguished Service Award to Rio Blanco Commissioner Shawn Bolton; and honoring Pitkin County Commissioner Rachel Richards with a special Dedication Award.

Delta County Commissioner Mark Roeber succeeded Teller County Commissioner Dave Paul as President of CCI, a non-profit, membership association whose purpose is to offer assistance to county commissioners and to encourage counties to work together on common issues. Governed by a Board of Directors consisting of eight commissioners from across the state, CCI’s focus is on information, education and legislative representation. CCI strives to keep members up-to-date on issues that directly impact county operations. At the same time, CCI works to present a united voice to the Colorado General Assembly and other government and regulatory bodies to help shape a bright future for Colorado and its citizens.
