Club 20 is excited to announce the return of the in-person Fall Conference and Steak Fry. This event has been a staple in western Colorado for decades and will return on Sept. 10 and 11 at the Double Tree Hotel, 743 Horizon Drive, in Grand Junction.
The Fall Conference is a great place for members and guests to meet local, state and federal elected and appointed officials and to hear presentations on the most pressing issues impacting western Colorado.
On Friday evening, Sept. 10, the Club 20 Steak Fry will be hosted at Cross Orchards Living History Museum, 3073 F Road, Grand Junction. It is the West Slope event of the year — you will not want to miss it.
Saturday, Sept. 11, will feature presentations on a number of relevant topics impacting Western Colorado, including:
• Remembering 9/11.
• Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser.
• U.S. Congresswoman Lauren Boebert.
• Panel discussion: Assessing the likelihood of a Colorado River compact call.
• Redistricting Colorado.
• Bureau of Land Management headquarters and issues update.
• Current status of agriculture in Colorado.
• Wolf introduction update.
• Unifying our region, state and country.
“The policy issues impacting our region didn’t stop just because of the pandemic. The Club 20 Fall Conference is an invaluable opportunity to learn, engage and make your voice heard,” said Christian Reece, Club 20 executive director. “The issues we are facing as a region, a state and a nation have far reaching implications and it is vital that our leaders, both locally and in our nation’s capital, be strong advocates on behalf of the needs of our communities.”
