CTA’s Day at the State Capitol a success!

Denver,CO – April 24, 2013 – CTA, Colorado Technology Association, in partnership with Coalition for a Connected West and BuiltInDenver hosted an informative discussion about policies affecting the technology industry at the Colorado State Capitol on Friday, April 19.

More than 200 government and technology leaders attended the event, including CTA's new CEO Erik Mitisek, AT&T 's Colorado President, Bill Soards, and former Colorado House of Representatives and Speaker, Andrew Romanoff.

"The Day at the Capitol event with CTA is our unique opportunity to be able to come in and engage with legislators and collaborate at a level that reinforces the importance of technology in our state, " said Andrea Young, CTA Board Chair.

"Every day we live in a more Internet-based world where consumers are demanding technologies that Colorado businesses provide," said Michael Price, executive director of the Coalition for a Connected West. "It's essential that all Coloradans continue to benefit from the opportunities generated by high speed internet, which is made possible in an environment of limited regulation. We must work together to modernize our laws to encourage private investment, growth and innovation in technology."
