Letter from the President

Dear CACEO Member,

After great consideration, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Advanced Certification Course scheduled for October 14-16 in Castle Rock.

I hope everyone is finding their way in our new reality. The CACEO Board is also navigating through the ever changing Covid-19 environment. Our first and foremost priority is the health and safety of you, our members. After much discussion, input from our members and reviewing the certification survey, it was determined that moving forward with certification was not in the best interest of CACEO or you. Many of you noted that you would not be able to attend due to financial constraints, travel restrictions by employers or concerns of your own personal health and safety. The Board was also faced with uncertainty about whether Colorado health guidelines would permit a large gathering.

The Board investigated whether a virtual certification could be possible and determined that the level of quality our attendees and the Board expect could not be delivered with the current resources.

We will forever be grateful to the instructors, members and Board members who had already committed their expertise and support for the 2020 event and we will be circling back to each of them about certification in 2021 when those details are set.

We are exploring options of having Advanced next spring, and Basic in the fall. We won’t know more until there is progress on a vaccine or the pandemic subsides, so stay tuned.

Quarterly Trainings Replaced with Virtual Training

We know that the code enforcement profession is affected when training is depleted. We want to explore every avenue to continue to provide opportunities that contribute to the standard of professionalism for our members and public safety through training, networking, and advocacy. Like us, many of you are having virtual meeting fatigue, so we will keep this in mind. However, we do feel it’s important to keep the lines of communication open, to network with officers across the state, and to continue to learn from one another.

Until further notice, the plan is to replace the Quarterly Trainings with virtual learning opportunities. We will send out blast emails from and post updates on the CACEO website Some training will be on a specific date and time, some will be a link to complete at your convenience, and some will be links to on-line training offered by others.

Recently, we hosted Dr. Nicoletti with “Enforcing in a Pandemic.” There were some technical issues, so please be patient as we try to figure this all out. Troy Arnold, Criminal Investigator, Office of the Colorado Attorney General also put on a training about Interviewing for Regulators (Enforcement personnel).

If anyone has “attended” an on-line course that you feel is relevant to CACEO members, please let us know. Also, please inform us what topics are of interest to you.

2020 Business Meeting and Election

We expect to have a virtual business meeting the first week of December. The Board is researching options about how the 2020 election might be held through the web site. We are also exploring changes to the by-laws to allow more flexibility during unforeseen, long-term times like these.

Thank you for being a part of CACEO. If you have specific ideas, feedback or questions please reach out. We look forward to the day it is safe for all of us to gather again. Thank you for all you do for your communities and for each other.

Stay Safe,

Michael Cairy
