Rogers has more than ten years of marketing and public relations experience, having worked with both nonprofit and commercial entities in developing community outreach and strategic marketing planning.
Most recently she was employed with Mosaic, a national corporation serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, where she handled public relations and marketing.
Rogers has also served on the Moab Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, the Moab Lodging Association, the Grand Junction Economic Partnership and the Colorado Mesa University (formerly Mesa State College) Business Administration Board.
She has also been employed with the City of Moab as the Executive Director of the Moab Arts and Recreation Center, where she gained extensive events coordination experience.
Adding to her business experience, Rogers has owned two businesses, including a flower shop and RV rental business.
“I hope to focus the chamber on the entire county, which from an economic standpoint I feel makes sense. Barbara Ford and the Board have done a phenomenal job of bring the chamber and other entities together. I hope build on what has already been done.”
The chamber has been through many transitions lately with former president Michael Martin moving out of the area and the passing of former board member Jane Musselman.
Barbara Ford, while stepping down as Executive Assistant, will be staying on as a board member.
“I am very grateful Barbara will continue to serve the chamber. She has a wealth of knowledge regarding the day to day operations, as well as chamber sponsored events,” said Rogers.
Current board members include Keith Clark of K & A Chuckwagon, Joe Barton of Bullhollow Raceway, Dale Black of Black Oil Company, Scott Frost of Blue Mountain Meats, Tom Wigginton of San Juan Pest Maintenance and Jeremy Hoggard of GetGo Imaging.
The chamber holds a weekly luncheon meeting every Thursday at rotating local restaurants and invites all to attend.
