Call for Leadership
We invite you to consider leadership in the Colorado Bar Association! The CBA values its diverse membership and our communities. We are committed to recruiting leaders that represent all of the members we serve from a wide range of positions, personal histories, identities and geographic representation.
The CBA’s Mission and Values Statements demonstrate the CBA’s commitment to ensuring equity, diversity and inclusivity throughout the Association:
The CBA seeks inclusion and equity through broad recognition of diversity, including, but not limited to race, ethnicity, national origin, socio-economic status, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, disability, age, veteran status, geography, political beliefs, ideology, spiritual beliefs, years of practice, and practice settings. We prioritize broad, equitable, and inclusive participation in our membership and leadership. The CBA is dedicated to promoting attorneys of all backgrounds, identities, and circumstance through the removal of barriers to engagement and leadership.
