By by Kevin Bommer, executive director

The Annual Business Meeting of the Colorado Municipal League (CML) will be held virtually at 10 a.m. on June 25. The Annual Business meeting is open to all CML member municipalities, you are encouraged to attend and register someone to cast your municipality's vote in the CML Executive Board election that will occur during the meeting.

Every CML member is entitled to vote for CML Executive Board candidates in all population categories, but the changes in the voting rules to accommodate a virtual meeting require each municipality to select its voting delegate ahead of time. Predesignating voting delegates was required, as previously noticed, and is to be completed by midnight on June 22. Each municipality may have only one voting delegate. This delegate must be a municipal official (elected or staff), have access to a working email address, and be present for the duration of the virtual annual business meeting. If your delegate is not present for roll call during the meeting, your municipality will not be able to vote. If you wish to be your municipality's voting delegate, please contact your city/town clerk prior to the end of the day on June 22 to be designated.

Regardless, all CML members may attend the online Annual Business Meeting, even if not the registered voting delegate. To register to attend, visit All registered attendees will receive a link to the virtual meeting on June 24.

Executive Board candidates' information is online

The Executive Board election is your municipality's opportunity to select CML's governing body and influence the future and direction of CML. Every member municipality's vote has the same weight in the election, so make sure your municipality's voice is heard!

CML Board candidates' information is available on the CML website at and features a short bio of each candidate. Candidates also had the option of submitting a short video, which can also be viewed on the website. There are seven candidates for three seats in the Small category; four candidates for four seats in the Medium category; four candidates for three seats in the Large category; and one candidate for one seat
in the Largest category. Again, voting delegates will vote for each population category, so make sure to study up on all the candidates.

Other business

In addition to the Board election, attendees will adopt the 2020–2021 CML Policy Statement, review 2021 dues, and hear a brief annual report of CML activities. The annual report will also include an important advocacy update on the tumultuous and eventful legislative session that finally ended on June 15. We look forward to seeing you all virtually on June 25!
