The Middle Colorado Watershed Council includes both a broad stakeholders group and, as of December 2013, a Board of Directors (BOD). Following considerable research and discussion, the original governing body, the Leadership Committee, recommended that the Council formalize itself as a not-for-profit entity under Colorado law. Advantages to incorporation are that it provides for an on-going, clear method of internal decision-making and self-governance, allows the Council to accept grant monies and donations directly, and necessitates independent financial planning and management. Copies of the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws are available upon request.
