GOCO’s Board Members

Our board members are all volunteers who share a passion for Colorado’s great outdoors. Appointed by the Governor and subject to confirmation by the Colorado State Senate, each member may serve up to two four-year terms. Board members approve GOCO’s financial plans, grant programs, and all grant awards.

In order to best represent the interests of our 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 are from the same political party. 
  • One member of the board represents agricultural interests. 
  • Two members 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.
