We are so fortunate at the Denver Metro Chamber to be a gathering place for some of the region’s best and brightest leaders who come together to share their expertise and discuss solutions for the most critical issues of our day.
With the start of a new fiscal year, several of those leaders are stepping into new leadership roles on our various boards and committees. Bill Lindsay of Lockton Companies is taking the helm as chair of the Denver Metro Chamber board after serving as chair of the Health Care Committee for several years. He also served as the Chair for the National Small Business Association.
In turn, Dr. Ted Clarke of COPIC and Ruth Benton of New West Physicians will be co-chairing the Health Care Committee. Lisa Decker of Snell & Wilmer and Bob Loew of Fairfield and Woods PC will be the co-chairs for the Transportation Committee and Joel Rosenstein of Senn Visciano Canges Rosenstein P.C. and Jim Mulligan of Snell & Wilmer will lead the Public Affairs Council. Together, these public policy committees and councils provide a forum for our members to receive updates and weigh in on issues and discuss upcoming legislative action. Our Legislative Policy Committee, led by Lori Fox of United Airlines, then determines the Chamber’s position on specific bills.
We also welcome new leaders to the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation and its industry affiliates. Todd Munson of JP Morgan Chase & Co. will join John Beeble of Saunders Construction in co-chairing the Metro Denver EDC’s Executive Committee. G. Thomas Marsh, retired executive vice president of Lockheed Martin Space Systems, has joined Colorado Lt. Governor Barbara O’Brien and Major General Andy Love (Ret.) as a co-chair of the Colorado Space Coalition. Lee Boughey of Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association Inc. and Tim Heaton of Coolerado Corporation will each serve two-year terms as co-chairs of the Colorado Energy Coalition. Travis Vallin of Jviation will serve as chair of the Metro Denver Aviation Coalition MDAC and Bob Deibel of OfficeScapes will be vice chair.
Finally, David Palmer of Greenberg Traurig will be serving as chair of the Denver Metro Chamber Leadership Foundation board in 2010-2011.
We thank these leaders for their commitment of time and service to the Denver Metro Chamber and its affiliates. Their dedication makes us stronger and leads to more effective collaboration and problem-solving for all of Colorado.
Nothing is more important than having people just like these, who are directly addressing challenges and issues for their businesses and companies every single day, helping find solutions that will continue to move all of us toward our goal creating a economy for Colorado.
