Chelsea Powers

Immediate Past President

Family Information

 I have been married to my husband, Ryan Powers, for 4 years. Two years ago, we were blessed with a handsome and energetic son, Kellen, who definitely keeps us on our toes! This past August, we were blessed with a daughter.  When we are not chasing our kids around, Ryan and I enjoy golfing, exercise, cheering on the Iowa Hawkeyes and hanging out with our family and friends.

Work Information

I currently work at Holmes Murphy & Associates as a Clients Service Executive in the Employee Benefits Division. Holmes Murphy is a premier independent risk management and insurance brokerage firm. We make a difference by promoting health, protecting wealth, and delivering peace of mind.

My Rotary Story

 I first joined Rotary in 2008, thanks to my sponsor, Mark Ross. I wanted to be involved in a service club that not only made a positive impact in the community, but one that I could have fun at! I found my place at Bettendorf Rotary. Shortly after I joined, I was approached to serve on the Bettendorf Rotary Board and I gladly accepted. Serving on the Board over the past 4 years has been such a rewarding experience! I have met so many caring and wonderful people and have learned a tremendous amount about Rotary.

My Rotary Involvement

Since joining Rotary, I have had the opportunity to become involved in various projects. I served as the Run with Carl Rotary Club Representative for 4 years, as well as assisting in the development of our Rotary in Motion Challenge, held every summer. In addition to serving on the Board, I co-chair the Marketing and Events Committee with fellow Rotarian, Chris Glass. With the assistance of our AMAZING Committee, we launched an award-winning website that has brought more positive attention to the wonderful projects our Club sponsors. This past year, we also launched our Facebook page, which increases popularity everyday. This year I am taking on a new role as co-chair of our Club’s Signature Event, Lobsterfest, which I am very excited about!

I am truly honored to be a Board Member of the Bettendorf Rotary. During my term I focused on the following items:

  • Assist with succession Planning of our Club
  • Encourage Family Events within our Club
  • Increase our Club’s Visibility throughout Community Events
  • Encourage Young Professionals to join our Club

I am proud to be a Rotarian, especially a Bettendorf Rotarian, and I am excited to see what amazing things our Cub will accomplish over the next few years!
