This week, the Superior Chamber’s Nominating Committee slated Jen Willard, CEO of JWILL Pink Village, Inc., for an open board of directors position for 2021.

Willard, a breast cancer survivor, has distributed more than 4,000 specialized pillows to provide post-surgical comfort to cancer patients locally and across the nation. In addition to running her non-profit, she has worked as a life underwriter for State Farm Insurance for 21 years.

Willard graduated from the University of Northern Colorado (where her oldest son, AJ, now plays football). She began her career in Greeley as a Campaign Accounts Manager with the United Way of Weld County. Willard and her husband, Steve, now call Superior home. Her youngest son, Owen, is a junior at Monarch High School. She has been a member of the Chamber since 2019.

Willard has been slated for election to Seat Four on the Board of Directors. That seat is being vacated by retiring board member Angela Rhoades, owner of SmileLogic. Rhoades has served on the Chamber’s board since 2013, two years as president from 2018-2020.

In addition to Willard, the Nominating Committee has slated two incumbent board members for new three-year terms. Nick Crothers of Nick Crothers Real Estate currently serves as the organization’s treasurer and seeks reelection to Seat Five. Barbara Pennell Jaynes of Positively-Funded currently serves as the vice president of membership and seeks reelection to Seat Six.

If elected, the three leaders will serve through 2024. The Chamber’s board has nine seats, three of which are elected each year. The board elects its officer positions at its first meeting of the new term in July.

A full list of current officers and their seat numbers can be found on the Chamber’s WEBSITE.

Chamber members will be asked to approve the slate via electronic ballot during the organization’s elections the week of May 3, 2021. Newly elected and retiring board members will be recognized at the Chamber’s Annual Awards event on June 8.
