The Special District Association of Colorado (SDA) is a statewide membership organization created in 1975 to serve the interests of the special district form of local government in Colorado. The Special District Association was organized to provide better communication, research, legislative input, administrative support, and educational opportunities for member districts. SDA exists to help special districts serve the public in the most efficient and economical manner possible. The Special District Association advocates on behalf of special districts before the Colorado General Assembly. Jim Collins has served as Executive Vice President of the SDA since its inception, and we continue to work closely with the SDA to draft legislation that is important to special districts, and to present at the Spring Workshops, Annual Conference, and various webinars throughout the year.
