The Conference of the Rockies is a premier, biennial risk reduction conference held on the off years of Vision 20/20’s Model Performance in Community Risk Reduction Symposium.  Through this collaborative partnership, Vision 20/20 and CRRN are combining their passion for excellence, along with the human capital necessary to build a truly inspirational and engaging event.  We believe this conference is an invaluable opportunity for attendees to come together, share ideas, network, and learn best practices that will help them make positive changes in their organization and community.

The Conference of the Rockies is always an unforgettable experience and offers so much in the way of quality educational programming, engagement and networking says Stephen Hrustich, Vision 20/20 project manager. “Vision 20/20’s goal was to continue momentum in the off years of our Symposium series while forging a strong partnership that can help both organizations grow.  Our focus is to provide a unique experience to learn from industry-leading subject matter experts on delivering relevant, outcomes based workshops that enable attendees to gain actionable insights and takeaways that build knowledge and confidence” he added. “

We at the Colorado Risk Reduction Network (CRRN) are thrilled that Vision 20/20 is bringing in their expertise and assistance to help make the Conference of the Rockies bigger and better! I cannot wait to see what opportunities this partnership brings, when it comes to training and the extensive knowledge base that we as a network work hard on bringing not only to our members, but the communities our members live and work in.”
