What is the CTA Young Professionals (YoPro) Board?

The CTA YoPro board reaches out to peers in the same age group, offering opportunities for them to get involved. Together, Colorado Technology Association and the YoPro board offer young philanthropists to engage and advocate the CTA mission.

Specifically, members of the YoPro board:

  • Create and manage events for the organization
  • Make personal donations, and volunteer
  • Establish and grow the representation of young professional involvement in the Colorado Technology community 
  • Assist in raising awareness and advocate the CTA and YoPro mission while connecting them with a broader network of supporters
