This Friday, the Governor is scheduled to sign into law five pieces of legislation that together, create the Telecom Reform Package for Colorado. Good news: Colorado did it!
After working on telecom reform for the greater part of the last four legislative sessions (four years), what made this year different? Collaboration. During this session all stakeholders came together before the session even started and committed to the process of passing what would become the Telecom Reform Package. Coming together was the key element. The 2014 legislative session, around this complex technology and telecom issue, was marked by collaboration. The willingness to align shared interest, find the point where all parties succeed, and collectively ban together to move Colorado forward.
For that, congratulations to the Colorado technology community for this spirit of partnership.
Looking to the process that helped pass the Telecom Reform Package this year, I think that there is much to learn about building Colorado together. Building communities together. Building our businesses together.
Collaboration wins. Last fall, I referenced that in Colorado, “C” is for collaboration. And that holds true now more than ever. It is in our spirit, our heritage, and work ethic to cooperate and help Colorado succeed.
This month, think about how you and your organization can collaborate to make a better Colorado. You can see the progress through the lens of Telecom Reform how impactful we can be when we work together. The future of the Colorado technology community is in each of your hands, and the ability to forge relationships, partnerships and work together, will make the difference.
Thank you for all you do to make Colorado what it is - and collaboration wins!
