Board of Directors

Destination Imagination Colorado (DICO) ( is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing challenging programming to youth throughout Colorado that promotes creative thinking to solve interesting problems in areas related to science, engineering, technology, arts, theatre, and service-learning. Throughout the past decades, young people compete in teams to engage in problem-solving in a competitive setting. Students learn leadership, teamwork, real-world skills, and persistence as they work together in competition with other teams. Our success has been demonstrated through the learning, engagement, and sense of efficacy that both adults and students show each year as they tackle interesting problems and compete on regional, state, and global levels.

The DI Colorado Board of Directors, along with the Executive Director and regional directors, provide leadership to the program. Our fervent desire is to provide an opportunity for every interested child in Colorado to participate on a Destination Imagination team.

Strategic Imperative Reports

Each year, the board creates and publishes a list of “strategic imperatives.” These are tasks and initiatives that the board feels are vital to accomplish as a way to help us meet our mission to “prepare Colorado’s kids to be the innovators of the future by combining the arts, sciences, and technology with creativity, teamwork, and problem solving.”

2022-2023 Strategic Imperatives:

The Board of Directors has focused on four strategic areas for 2022-23: fundraising, diversity/equity/inclusion, corporate and higher education engagement; and technology updates.  Ambitious goals have been set in each area. Efforts include the first annual gala and other fundraising events; outreach to increase adult and youth participation in DI, particularly those from economically depressed areas; outreach to engage corporate entities and to form more higher education partnerships; and effective use of social media and other forms of technology.
