State Party Chairman
Ryan Call was elected Colorado Republican State Chairman in March 2011. Ryan was born in Denver, grew up in Adams County, and attended Ranum High School in Federal Heights. He received his J.D. from the University of Denver in 2005, and his M.B.A. in finance and organizational management and B.A. degrees from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
Ryan is an attorney with the Denver law firm of Hale Westfall, LLP, where he provides legal counsel and strategic advice to a broad range of corporations and trade associations, tax-exempt non-profits and advocacy organizations, political party committees, candidate and political action committees, and individuals.
Ryan previously served as a member of the University of Denver Sturm College of Law Alumni Council, as a Commissioner appointed by Governor Bill Owens to the Colorado Access to Justice Commission, and worked for two sessions as a legislative aide in the Colorado General Assembly. He has served as a member of the Colorado Secretary of State’s Advisory Panels on Election Law and Campaign Finance and Lobbyist Regulation, and the Colorado Lawyer’s Committee Election Law Task Force. In addition to his membership in the Colorado and Denver Bar Associations, Ryan has been an active member of the Denver Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the Federalist Society and the Republican National Lawyer’s Association, and is a member of the National Rifle Association.
Prior to being elected State Chairman, Ryan served as the State Party’s legal counsel from 2006 to 2011, assisting Party leaders, candidates, and grassroots activists in navigating the increasingly complicated campaign finance rules, election laws, and Party organizational questions. In the months leading up to the 2008 elections, he took a leave of absence from his law practice to work full-time as In House Counsel and as the State Party’s Political Director. His work for the State Party has involved traveling the state, fielding countless inquiries and calls with local leaders and candidates, and leading numerous trainings and webinars.
Ryan’s heart is and has always been with the grassroots of the conservative movement. He entered politics as a campus leader of the College Republicans at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and served as the State Chairman of the Colorado Youth for Bush effort during the 2000 campaign. In the two years he served as the State Chairman of the Colorado College Republicans, the organization started ten new campus groups and recruited thousands of young people to the Republican Party. He was elected by his peers to serve for two years as the National Co-Chairman of the College Republican National Committee, and in that capacity assisted with national fundraising and continued to provide training and support, and to rally young volunteers for the Republican cause.
In addition to his work at the State Party, over the past eight years Ryan has meaningfully served his own local County Party, volunteering as a precinct committeeperson, for four years as County Party Vice-Chairman, and most recently as the Chairman of the Denver Republican Party.
Ryan and his wife Brittany now live in Arapahoe County with their four children: Aaron (age 9), Lauren (age 7), Andrew (age 3) and Eleanor (age 8 months). In addition to his significant political involvement, he volunteers as a Sunday School teacher, and as a merit badge counselor for the local troop of the Boy Scouts of America.
