Your articles of organization/incorporation state the following:

 

Article V

Members

The sole member of the Corporation shall be Development (sic) Pathways Inc. (the “Publicly Supported Organization”).

 

We believe that Continuum of Colorado, Inc., needs to have a broader and more numerous membership.  Continuum spends scores of millions of local, state and federal dollars and having only one member (and a corporation, at that) gives you extremely limited input from the community, and keeps the focus of the corporation very narrow.

 

We request that you revise the Articles to include a broader membership, and we offer the following community members for Continuum of Colorado, Inc.  A brief description of the qualifications of each proposed member is provided along with their names.  To provide proper community balance, we have included both those who live in the Continuum catchment area, and those who do not.
