Last week, Regional Council members and El Pomar Foundation staff met in Black Hawk, Colorado for El Pomar’s Statewide Meeting and Retreat. Through a carefully crafted agenda, Council members were able to learn more about El Pomar, the Regional Partnerships, and new techniques and strategies for maximizing each Council’s regional impact. Council members and El Pomar staff were also able to engage other leaders and hear about innovative new projects and endeavors happening across the state.
In addition, attendees participated in El Pomar’s Awards for Excellence presentation ceremony. This year’s event included remarks from Governor John Hickenlooper, recipient of the Ben S. Wendelken Special Trustees Award for commitment to the nonprofit sector.
