Susan Ridenhour is the President and has been a member of Junior League of Annapolis, Inc. (JLA) since 2001. She has held leadership positions in the Finance, Community Impact, and Membership councils, and served on the JLA Board of Directors as both Financial Resources VP and Member-at-Large. Susan’s first committee placement was on the Totally Terrific Tag Sale (TTTS). She was also involved in past projects such as the Annapolis Children’s Museum Board of Directors for two years, the Nominating & Placement committee, and most recently, as a Co-Chair of Education & Training committee.
Susan initially joined the JLA to meet other women who were interested in the community, but quickly embraced the JLA mission. She has personally grown through the training opportunities JLA has provided over the years and hopes that other members utilize similar opportunities for growth. Susan is inspired by the women of JLA and is incredibly thankful for the ensuing lifelong friendships.
