PSU Colorado Volunteers

PSU Colorado is made up entirely of volunteers (even our Officers). We are always needing volunteers. If you are able to volunteer your time, your ideas, giveaways, or any type of support, please let us know. Everything we do would not be possible without the help and support of volunteers. As always, contact us at

PSU Colorado Board of Directors Structure:
The PSU Colorado Board of Directors consists of four Officer positions who direct the main initiatives of the Chapter, listed below. Various Chair positions report to each Officer. All Officers are elected individuals who are nominated and voted annually in person at the annual meeting held in the first quarter of each year. The Board meets monthly on the first Thursday of the month (location varies) from January through August. In the Fall, the Board practically meets every Saturday during the game watches at our main football game watch location in Denver. Our meetings are completely transparent and are posted under our Events section and are always open to anyone who wishes to attend (open to alumni and non-alumni). Simply register for the meeting on this site so we know you're coming or feel free to just show up!

On March 14, 2019, the following officers and chairpersons were confirmed / voted to our Board of Directors:


 President  Phil Wiest

 Co-Vice President
 Co-Vice President

 Kyle Snyder
 Hilary Keptner
 Treasurer  Jeff Kaczmarczyk
 Secretary Darcy Barr


PSU Colorado has several Committees for volunteers to get involved. The following Committees and Chair contacts are listed below. For each Committee, we are always looking for volunteers to get involved to help with each Committee or be Committee Co-Chairs. As you can see, we have several areas for volunteers to get involved. In addition, we have several volunteers (not listed) who regularly attend Board meetings and assist in events throughout the year.
