About the Committee

The COABA Public Policy Committee (Pub Pol) works under the direction of the COABA Executive Board. Pub Pol facilitates actions with key Colorado state decision-makers including the state legislature and other governmental bodies, as well as other practitioner and parenting advocacy organizations, to recommend policy, legislative, and regulatory solutions. The PPC also arranges training on issues relevant to our membership (e.g., billing codes and issues, legal issues).
