Join us virtually for State of the State Presented by Xcel Energy

The 2021 legislative session is one that we won’t forget for a long time. From stimulus funding to public option to transportation, the business community was in the thick of discussions when it came to policy. Hear Colorado Gov. Jared Polis’ thoughts about what crossed his desk – or didn’t cross his desk – in 2021 and what he sees for the future of our state. We’ll also convene a panel of business leaders to talk about the deep connections between our workforce, economic development and policy changes, and Denver Metro Chamber President and CEO Kelly Brough will share the business perspective on this unprecedented session and what it means to Colorado’s economy..
