New Business:

  • CCA Mid-Winter conference recap – Catherine went to mid winter in Denver tons of wolf discussion, legislative, participation down for CCA and many affiliates as well. Get dues paid, encourage current membership to engage and help more.  Don’t do a membership drive try to have current members help out more.   Highway safety in rural areas, trade agreements, animal welfare, Cow farts aren’t that bad!

Next CCA meeting to be held in Colorado Springs in June.  Stay tuned.

  • Newsletters we haven’t had anything started yet, want to send one out on a monthly basis. Highlight our members including when we get new members. Updates from CCA links will be in there.  Money insights, local happenings, ballots etc..   If you would like anything added to newsletter please contact Catherine.
  • Wolf ballet measure


Discussion Items:

  • Wolf Campaign contributions with CCA. Thank you for all your efforts in supporting us in the effort to help get the information out to STOP the wolf reintroduction. We tried to send $1,000 from CCCA however we did not have the funds in the general account, so CCCA sent out $500 plus member donations.  If you have any ideas on how to raise extra $500 or we can just leave it at that and have members pledge the money. Please contact Catherine for further insight, questions and ideas.
  • 2020 fundraising goals silent auction and/or any fundraising goes to general account to help get funds up.
  • 2020 Speaker topics/guests of interest
