CJI Seeks Dynamic Leaders in 2023!

We are an independent, nonpartisan, statewide community organization and 501(c)(3) nonprofit with an important mission to promote public trust in Colorado's courts (click here for full mission statement).

CJI seeks:

  • A wide array of community and business leaders from diverse professions.
  • Candidates from all over Colorado, from the Western Slope to the Front Range to the Eastern Plains.
  • Diversity factors including gender, race/ethnicity, LGBTQ, age, areas of expertise, and points of view.
  • As part of CJI's ongoing efforts to reach beyond the legal community and ensure we represent all of Colorado, we particularly encourage applications from non-attorneys.

  • Genuine interest in CJI's mission.
  • Commitment and capacity to participate in six board meetings per year and actively contribute to committee work.
  • Attendance at CJI events throughout the year.

In return, CJI provides you:
