Destination Imagination Colorado Board of Directors

ORGANIZATION: Destination ImagiNation Colorado

  • 2 people are interested

Destination Imagination Colorado (DICO) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing challenging programming to youth throughout Colorado that promotes creative thinking to solve interesting problems in areas related to science, engineering, technology, arts, theatre, and service-learning. Throughout the past decades, young people compete in teams to engage in problem-solving in a competitive setting. Students learn leadership, teamwork, real-world skills, and persistence as they work together in competition with other teams. Our success has been demonstrated through the learning, engagement, and sense of efficacy that both adults and students show each year as they tackle interesting problems and compete on regional, state, and global levels.

The DI Colorado Board of Directors, along with the Executive Director and regional directors, provide leadership to the program. Our fervent desire is to provide an opportunity for every interested child in Colorado to participate on a Destination Imagination team.

We are seeking creative leaders to help us support that vision: people who are ready to help us increase our participation, and especially to increase the demographic diversity of our youth and adult participants and to ensure our growth and sustainability in years to come.

If you would like to help, please nominate yourself for a position on the DI-CO Board!

The Board is responsible for the defining the issues, thinking creatively of opportunities, and addressing challenges that exist for DICO. Our strategic priorities are in the areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion; corporate partnerships; and fundraising/financial support.

Each board member makes a commitment to:

  • Be informed about, and actively support the mission, vision, and strategic goals of DICO.
  • Prepare for and attend board meetings at least nine times per year. Board meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 PM. We mostly meet virtually, though there are in-person meetings.
  • Attend an annual strategic planning retreat, usually held in July.
  • Make a personal, tax-deductible contribution at least once a year at a level reasonable for your personal budget.
  • Participate in fundraising and special events for the organization.

We currently have up to four seats open for a three-year term beginning July 1, 2022. We are looking for volunteers who have skills or connections in promoting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Corporate Partnerships, and Fundraising. DICO Board Members do not necessarily need to be current or former volunteers, and may be volunteers from outside our DICO organization. To be considered for this opportunity, please e-mail kate@dicolorado.com with a cover letter conveying the talents or skills you could bring to our board and how you could contribute to our strategic priorities by March 31, 2022. Thanks so much for your interest!
