Greetings from Colorado Business Roundtable,
Since you've already heard from us this week, we're keeping this edition short. We've had two great events that we want to share with you and thank you for attending: Coloradans for Immigration Reform at Colorado Farm Bureau and The Importance of International Trade at Denver International Airport. See below for more information about those, and if you received this newsletter as a forward or through social media, be sure to subscribe and receive it directly so that you don't miss out on all the events we have planned for 2017.

Our full edition of COBRT Weekly News will return next week with more event photos and videos including CSBR's 13th Annual Space Roundup! We appreciate your readership. Thank you.

Colorado Business Roundtable (COBRT) is honored to join Coloradans for Immigration Reform, the coalition of chambers of commerce and industry associations working towards bipartisan immigration reform. The formal launch was held on December 6, 2016 at Colorado Farm Bureau. Chad Vorthmann, Executive Vice President, Colorado Farm Bureau; Mizraim Cordero, Vice President of Governmental Affairs at the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce; and COBRT president Jeff Wasden addressed the need for immigration reform in order to having a thriving workforce and business climate.

Ultimately, it was a discussion of what's best for Colorado businesses, but at "The Importance of International Trade," speakers and attendees took the conversation to several important topics including economics, diversity and inclusion, workforce education, defense and peace.

This roundtable discussion, held at Denver International Airport (DEN) on December 6, 2016, featured remarks from Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock and Stephane Lessard, Canada's Consul General in Denver, as well as several distinguished partners and panelists. This event was brought to the Colorado business community with City and County of DenverDenver International Airport and Colorado Business Roundtable (COBRT).
