Board of Trustees

Our dedicated board members take their responsibility to the people of Colorado very seriously and strive to be responsive to the needs of communities and accountable to the public. Board members approve GOCO's financial plans, grant programs and all grants. 

The current chair is Jason Brinkley of Aurora.

Our board members are appointed by the Governor and subject to confirmation by the Colorado State Senate. In order to best represent the interests of the entire state, our 17-member board of trustees is designed so that:

  • Two members from each of Colorado’s seven congressional districts serve.
  • No two members from one congressional district can be from the same political party.
  • One member of the board must represent agricultural interests.
  • Two members must live west of the Continental Divide.
  • The executive director of the Colorado Department of Natural Resources and two representatives from the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission are members.
