Follow our public policy initiatives online here or on the CTA mobile app (search Colorado Technology in your app store). CTA staff will also be posting regular legislative updates on the CTA blog for members to view through the password-protected portal. CTA will be traveling to Washington D.C. to represent our industry at the annual DC Fly-In along with approximately 30 other technology councils on February 11-12. Current federal targets include immigration reform, patent trolling, data breach and notification, and startup innovation credit.

"I’ve had the pleasure of being actively engaged with CTA in a variety of capacities over the last seven years and can’t say enough good things about the organization. CTA has given me the opportunity to develop great relationships with many business leaders from across the state.
