Support Statement for the Colorado Chapter to allow the Chair of the DEI Committee to become a voting member of the Board:

The Colorado Chapter is fully engaged in working on being an inclusive organization. To keep in alignment with the APTA vision and mission the Colorado Chapter formed a DEI committee in 2021. The Committee is engaged in helping the Chapter increase outreach, participation and knowledge of the populations that are underserved by the chapter and our profession. To ensure that the DEI committee is getting representation the Colorado Chapter Board would like to allow this committee to be a voting member of the Board. Similar actions were taken 3 years ago to allow the Professional Development Committee (PDC) voting rights on the Board. The PDC is vital to the well-being of the Colorado Chapter with it primary focus of the state convention generating significant revenue for the Chapter. Likewise, the value that the DEI committee brings to the Chapter is an asset and should be given a voice on the direction of the Colorado Chapter.
