COA Legislative Districts

You can contribute to the COA's legislative efforts by becoming a keyperson for your state senator or state representative, your U.S. Congressman and/or Colorado's U.S. Senators. A keyperson is a COA member who has personal contact with a legislator. We are always looking for volunteers to become a keyperson so if you wish to meet a legislator, please contact Executive Director, Sheryl Benjamin

Each COA district has a legislative captain who coordinates legislative efforts and communications within that district. The legislative captains encourage all COA members to get involved in the legislative process by getting to know their state senator and representative, and by encouraging members to learn about the legislative process.
