As a collaborative working group, CCAT members each bring diverse subject matter expertise and deep local perspective in order to shape collective policy priorities and positions. CCAT seeks to equip counties and commissioners with the tools they need to engage state legislators and advance policies that support Colorado – our people, our environment and our culture.
Members actively engage on the state and local level and with a variety of stakeholders, including outreach to legislators, committee testimony, or review and input on pending legislation. A consensus-based decision model is employed to arrive at positions on legislation and policy, as well as action to be taken by CCAT members and staff.
Consensus is a creative and dynamic way of reaching agreement between all members. Rather than majority rule, the group works to find solutions that everyone actively supports, or at least can abide by.
