CML accepting applications for board vacancies

December 6, 2019

By Kevin Bommer

Letters of application are being accepted to fill positions on the Colorado Municipal League (CML) Executive Board in both the medium and largest municipality categories. 

The vacancies were created following the November elections, with one board member not being reelected and the other not
seeking reelection.

Officials in municipalities with a population between 8,000 and 60,000 (medium) and more than 250,000 (largest) who wish to be considered for appointment by the CML Executive Board should follow the instructions below. Under CML bylaws, population figures are based upon population estimates from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA). These are the same figures that were used in computing 2019 municipal dues for member municipalities. 

The CML bylaws state that Executive Board members must be elected or appointed officials of member cities and towns. Any official who desires to be considered for the position must:

• Submit an application for nomination, in a letter or other written form, no later than
5 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2020.

• Include an endorsement in writing from the applicant’s city council or board of trustees with the application, which also must be received by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2020. (Please note that a city council or board of trustees may endorse the nomination of only one official from the city or town for appointment.).

• Hold Friday, Jan. 24, 2020, from
10 a.m. to 2 p.m., to attend the CML Executive Board meeting if selected to be recommended to the full board for appointment. The board meeting will take place at CML at 1144 Sherman St. in Denver, and a call-in option will be available if applicants are unable to attend in person.

Municipal officials meeting the above qualifications will be considered for appointment by the CML Executive Board and be interviewed by the executive officers of the board, who will make a recommendation to the full board for approval on Jan. 24

Application materials should be mailed or delivered to Kevin Bommer, CML executive director, 1144 Sherman St., Denver, CO 80203.

Applications may also be emailed to or faxed to 303-860-8175. Questions may be directed to Bommer via email or by calling 303-831-6411
or 866-578-0936.
