Please join us in welcoming the new CEO of the Metro Denver EDC – JJ Ament. We look forward to hearing JJ’s perspective on the current development in Denver and the region as well as his expectations for the region’s priorities going forward. Denver’s growth has been unprecedented and JJ’s predecessor Tom Clark became synonymous with economic development success in the region. JJ will bring his own background and strategy to this very important position and we are excited to hear about it directly from him. As Tom and the EDC have long been friends to City Club, let’s give JJ a warm introduction to City Club - Denver’s longstanding civic forum.

PLEASE NOTE: This is the last luncheon of the program year and serves as the Annual Meeting of the Club. Please join us to conduct a brief official meeting before we adjourn until September. Thank you.
