Active participation in sections allows members to gain the maximum benefit from CBA membership. This involvement creates a special opportunity for the members to study issues, express ideas, apply talents and share experiences with others who have similar interests. Sections also offer valuable, informative and inexpensive seminars and institutes that generally offer CLE credits. The section member discount for a single CLE program often exceeds the total annual cost of joining the section. 

The Colorado Bar Association (“CBA”) values its diverse membership and our communities. We are committed to the eradication of racism, discrimination, and any other form of injustice against underrepresented groups. We promote diversity, equity, inclusion and the removal of barriers to success within the CBA and the communities we serve.

The CBA seeks inclusion and equity through broad recognition of diversity, including, but not limited to race, ethnicity, national origin, socio-economic status, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, disability, age, veteran status, geography, political beliefs, ideology, spiritual beliefs, years of practice, and practice settings. We prioritize broad, equitable, and inclusive participation in our membership and leadership. The CBA is dedicated to promoting attorneys of all backgrounds, identities, and circumstances through the removal of barriers to engagement and leadership. We are committed to actively changing systems, organizational structures, policies, practices, and attitudes, so that power is distributed and shared equitably and inclusively.

If you have general questions about a section, contact the section's staff liaison.
