The Colorado Office of Consumer Counsel (OCC), a division within the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA), is accepting applications for membership on its board.

The OCC represents the public interest of Colorado utility users and, specifically, the interests of residential, agricultural and small business consumers.

The core responsibility of board members is to provide oversight and policy guidance to the OCC and its director.

In accordance with recent legislation, the board shall have 11 members, seven of which shall be appointed by the governor. At least one member of the seven appointments will be actively engaged in agriculture as a business, and at least two members of the seven appointments will be owners of small businesses with 100 or fewer employees.
