Blog Member update: YIMBY Denver elects new leadership

Oct. 30, 2023

We are thrilled to announce some significant developments within our organization. These seek to make us more effective in our efforts toward greater housing choice, affordability, and livability in Colorado. They also introduce new ways that you, our members, can be involved in the organization!

Revised Bylaws

Over the past few months, the YIMBY Denver Leads have been diligently working on revising our organization's bylaws. These bylaws have been officially adopted by the Leads. They will serve as the cornerstone of our operations moving forward, and a copy of the revised bylaws can be found here for your review.

New Executive Committee

Our new bylaws establish an Executive Committee constituted of our officers. The purposes of this committee are to assist the President in providing strategic leadership of the chapter by setting agendas for the monthly meeting, making expeditious decisions when time sensitivity is a concern, and ensuring that all Chapter activities align with and effectively advance the mission of YIMBY Denver.

Having completed elections for our officers, we are excited to introduce our newly elected Executive Committee, a group of dedicated individuals who bring a wealth of experience and passion to their respective roles:

  • Ryan Keeney, President
  • Frank Locantore, Vice President
  • Anna De Witt, Secretary
  • Jonathan Pira, Treasurer

New Committee Chairs

Additionally, the bylaws call for committee chairs. These Chairs are responsible for setting the agenda of their Committee and ensuring the tasks of the Committee are completed. The Executive Committee has appointed the following committee chairs who will be instrumental in leading our various initiatives.

  • Abe Kaul, Membership Committee Chair
  • Luchia Brown, Communications Committee Chair
  • Matthew Larsen, Events Committee Chair

We are confident that under their guidance, our committees will flourish and contribute to the fulfillment of our organizational mission. Committee chairs will be reaching out shortly to garner interest in participating, so be on the lookout if you are interested in increasing your personal level of involvement!

Thank you

We are grateful for your continued support and commitment to our cause. Your active participation and involvement are what make our community thrive, and we look forward to your continued engagement in our upcoming endeavors.

Thank you for being an essential part of our organization.

Warm regards,

Executive Committee of YIMBY Denver
