Bringing Speakers to the Gunnison Valley Since 2003

Public Policy Forum of Crested Butte: 
~o~ President's Year End Message ~o~

December 3, 2016

Dear Friends of the Forum,

I just want to wish all of you the best for this holiday season.

I know you have been getting solicitations from every charitable organization you have ever come in contact with, so I would like to ask that you not forget the Public Policy Forum of Crested Butte.

Several of our past speakers were front and center on television during this past election, most notably Steve Schmidt on NBC and MSNBC and Mark McKinnon's offering on Showtime = The Circus. We are currently working hard at booking speakers for next summer and have five of the eight slots already spoken for.

Last summer we had two speakers who addressed ballot issues in the state of Colorado. One spoke on the end of life initiative which passed easily and the other on the Colorado universal healthcare proposal which failed.

As things have changed since the election, we will continue to strive to bring in speakers who will have inside knowledge and insight to the world of public policy.

Our organization continues to run on a very lean budget. We do not pay honorariums though expenses of bringing in and housing speakers continue to rise every year. We will continue to not charge admission and we rely on your kindness and generosity to support the Forum.

We hope to see all of you in the Butte next summer and at the Forum. Please send any donations to The Public Policy Forum, PO. Box 2256, Crested Butte, CO 81224. Or you can donate on PayPal through our link at
