Sign up for TBD Colorado: Be a voice for your community and your values

So many of us are motivated by "making a difference" in our communities but rarely know what exactly we should do to make that difference.  Last week, Gov. John Hickenlooper officially kicked off TBD Colorado, his statewide effort to solicit community input on important issues facing our families, our communities and our state. TBD Colorado is your chance to make a difference in your community and in Colorado.

TBD Colorado, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, is an unprecedented public engagement campaign that will be visiting 40 communities/regions, three different times from March 4 to mid-May to support conversations among community leaders on five issues: health, transportation, education, state workforce/talent and the state budget.  The March meetings in each region will explore those  issues from the perspective of current reality; the April meetings will ask participants to consider their aspirations, and the May meetings will be devoted to the topic "What do we do?"

At each meeting, a group of preselected individuals will participate in a guided discussion and register their opinions on keypads. Results of the keypad polling will be shared immediately with meeting participants. The input from the meetings form the basis for addressing the challenges we all face.

Please consider applying to be a part of TBD Colorado.

Please visit to volunteer to be one of the participants in your region who will have your opinion recorded in the keypad process. The application is easy, but you will have to commit to participating in all three meetings in your region. Even if you are not selected to be part of the keypad process, your participation will help the process and benefit your community.

If you choose to volunteer for TBD Colorado, please let us know by visiting our TBD Colorado support page and signing up to receive e-mail updates just about this project. We will prepare supplemental information to accompany the discussions at each meeting, and we would love to share it with you.
