Superior is a small, affluent community in East Boulder County – one of several vibrant municipalities that make up the thriving northwest metro area between Boulder and Denver. Long known as a primarily residential community, Superior’s commercial sector is booming with a new and ambitious “Downtown Superior” coming online in the next 2-5 years. Major issues include growth, infrastructure, and the transformation from a charming “small town” chamber to a more modern “3C Chamber” framework.

The executive director will direct the chamber’s efforts as outlined in its recently adopted strategic plan, providing: leadership to build a next-level business and professional community; advocacy to support a high-functioning and vibrant business community and workforce; sustainability to foster long-term economic vitality and quality of life; and a high-value membership experience. 

About half of our members are located in the borders of Superior, with the other half in surrounding communities. The Superior Chamber’s membership is majority-female and dominated by small businesses, so a creative entrepreneurial persona and a commitment to building mutually beneficial relationships are highly valued.
