Executive Director Courtney Rodwell - Executive Director
I’m a born and raised Colorado Native that moved to Delta County
about 5 years ago. I attended Colorado State University in Fort
Collins and graduated with a degree in Communication Studies (which
honestly I thought I’d never use but I am learning that it helps me
day-to-day). After graduating I managed the housekeeping company
that I had been working for to put myself through college and
eventually I moved to the area to eventually become the General
Manager at Smith Fork Ranch in Crawford. After moving to Crawford I
decided that the Western Slope was where I wanted to be and have
decided to call the area home.
I hope to be spending my time meeting our Chamber Members and
help the Board in coordinating membership programs and
benefits, providing opportunities for members to network and
promote their businesses; and help to plan and execute local
