From the President of Colorado Senior Lobby, Bob Brocker:
There is a continuing realization that as new people join in our Monday morning meetings, that not everyone is on the same page at all times. The lingo and discussions can seem like Greek to some, Latin to others, and everyday American to long-time CSL participants. To help each of those groups, really, (things do change) we are asking for your input on a few ideas for changing things up a bit. So I, as your president, am asking attendees of the CSL Legislative Committee Meeting to answer a few yes or no questions - please respond accordingly. Note there is also space for you to comment and make suggestions.

Question Title

* 1. Would you like to have a short - 20 minutes or so information/education session at the beginning of each meeting? (an example might be to ask an expert to explain the nuances of guardianship for older Coloradans - public, private, how one is appointed, responsibilities, and so on).

Question Title

* 2. Would you have in interest in the idea, during one meeting each month during the GA session, that we invite a legislator to attend and tell us what they are working on for seniors, and we get a chance to ask some questions, get acquainted? Caveat - this once a month meeting would have to be at 07:30 on a Tuesday.

Question Title

* 3. This is a longer yes/no question: Here are some initial ideas for informational/educational guests at our 0930 Monday meetings throughout the year - are these good ideas? Select all ideas that you like.

Question Title

* 4. Should CSL prepare a fact sheet/talking points for every bill that we strongly support? This would be something we can give committee members, something for our citizen lobbyists to use.

Question Title

* 5. Do you believe that to be a strong lobbying/advocacy organization, each of us who are active at the Capitol should be informed and sufficiently confident to leverage the few direct contacts we may have with the legislators/administration?

Question Title

* 6. Should we also be well-informed regarding CSL’s priorities so that we are able ambassadors for CSL?
