I am pleased to present to you, as a member of our CAMP community, the new Colorado Attorney Mentoring Program Strategic Plan. This is a plan by and for our community and is the result of many months of information gathering, analysis, and careful thought by our staff, stakeholders, and participants.
Our intent in publishing this plan is to provide clear direction for how CAMP will continue to advance strategically and with unity of purpose from our current position of strength to even greater relevance. We will do this by focusing our efforts and investments on the areas where we can most clearly differentiate ourselves and where we can have the greatest impact.
The plan takes into account that we are constantly reinventing the CAMP program. This is consistent with our pioneering spirit and reputation for innovation. Rather than rest on our record of accomplishment, we are committed to taking even greater responsibility for achieving more together in the future.
Appropriately, our strategic plan focuses on how we, as community members, can connect our endeavors to CAMP's overarching mission—to promote professional pride and identity in Colorado’s legal community and excellence in service to the public. Just as CAMP creates an environment where our participants define themselves, the plan sets the stage for all of us to work collectively to define CAMP's future.
Rather than a tactical guide, the plan is strategic, laying out in clear terms where we plan to invest our resources and why. We look to you, the members of our community, to turn the plan into action by thinking creatively about how you can align your time, talent, and effort with the strategy laid out here.
In very real terms, this plan challenges all of us to gather our strengths and work collaboratively to enhance CAMP's position as one of the nation's great attorney mentoring programs.
We have the will to do this, and with this plan, we have the way.

This strategic plan, in its making and in its message, exemplifies the enormous power of collaboration for which CAMP is renowned.
Collaboration is precisely how this plan came into being. By engaging many individuals—participants, staff, stakeholders, and alumni—across all areas of interest and responsibility, we have discovered practical approaches for taking CAMP to ever greater heights.
Collaboration is also how we will turn this plan into action. The strategy the plan embodies will guide us. As such, it is the basis for more tactical planning, a stimulus for participants and stakeholders to think creatively about how their goals align with the plan.
Just as the world around us changes constantly, the legal profession is continuously evolving. New lawyers arrive. Interests and emphases change. This plan allows for such dynamism without sacrificing our focus on the ultimate outcome—a great lawyer mentoring program fulfilling its mission to promote community, professionalism, and competency for Colorado lawyers.
Together we can move mountains!
