BROOMFIELD — Jennifer Kerr, president and CEO of the Broomfield Chamber of Commerce, has resigned the position, effective July 14. Kerr announced her resignation in a letter to chamber members July 7.
“It is with a heavy heart that I announce I have submitted my letter of resignation to the Board of Directors and my last day will be Friday, July 14th,” Kerr said in the letter. “I would have honestly stayed at the Broomfield Chamber until retirement as I just couldn’t see myself doing anything else but this job that I have loved so much. I truly care about
the Chamber; care about all of you and the success of your businesses. Yet, sometimes the Universe has other plans for you and you have to come to the realization that it’s time to move on to the next adventure. I’m taking a leap of faith to see what is next for me.”
Kerr first worked for the chamber 12 years ago as membership coordinator.
“I have tried to bring new ideas, programs, events and benefits to the members to provide as much value as possible for each member’s investment,” Kerr said. “Sometimes those ideas were a swing and a miss, but know that as I write this letter today, I still have ideas that I would love to implement as Chambers across the country evolve to meet the needs of their business community.”
Kerr said that the chamber board of directors would communicate what is next for the 400-member organization at a later date.
