Colorado Experience 2014 Program Highlights

About the Program:
Designed to promote dialogue on state-wide business and policy issues, the Colorado Experience program will take place in Pueblo, Colorado Thursday, April 24 – Friday, April 25. The program provides an opportunity for emerging and executive leaders to explore Colorado’s regional issues and to strengthen collective vision and collaboration in our communities. To promote thoughtful and creative dialogue, the delegation will be comprised of 100 leaders diverse in sector, industry, company, gender, ethnicity, as well as leaders with expertise in the themes of study. While the majority of delegates will be from the Denver metro region, a select group of leaders from around the state will also be invited to participate.

In Pueblo, we will be exploring economic development, water, health care, tourism and education issues that impact southeastern Colorado and the state as a whole. Pueblo, the economic hub of southeastern Colorado, is experiencing strong growth in its advanced manufacturing, energy and healthcare sectors. Pueblo is also a diverse community attracting tourists seeking multicultural and recreational offerings found only at this unique confluence of the Arkansas River and Fountain Creek. Learn about this fascinating region, firsthand, through access to local and statewide thought-leaders and experiential learning opportunities that will provide you with a behind-the-scenes view of the region and its many contributions to our state.

Participants: The delegation will be comprised of 75 emerging and established leaders diverse in sector, industry, company, gender, ethnicity, as well as leaders with expertise in the themes of study.

Fees:  Registration fees are $1,000. The participation fee includes travel, accommodations, meals and all materials costs.
