Letter from CCIA
CCIA was founded in 2008 and boy, has a lot happened since then! We're thrilled to be celebrating 10 years at our Cleantech Awards Celebration , which will be returning to Boulder and the Rayback Collective in 2018 on October 24 .

As you've told us many times, the Cleantech Awards Celebration is the most popular event of the year. You love the atmosphere and the opportunity to catch up with the great people who make Colorado's cleantech community so strong. Did you also know that the Celebration is our only fundraiser of the year? We love bringing everyone together and we thank you in advance for your support of this important event. 

As we celebrate 10 years of cleantech, we'll be introducing a series of "Did you know....." cleantech stories during the coming months. We're excited about the chance to brag about everything CCIA and its partners have been up to and we welcome stories you'd like to share as well.

We have opened registration for the Awards event, which celebrates the best and the brightest in clean energy and technology in Colorado. Contact us if you're interested in learning more about sponsorship or package opportunities.

Summer is usually a bit lighter on events in the extended community, but this year we're seeing lots of energy and excitement around innovation, entrepreneurship and sustainability. Check out all the news and events below. It's a good time to be cleantech!
Sincerely,
Shelly Curtiss
