Jan Jordan was member services manager for the North Dakota League of Cities during the last eight years of her employment and worked for the League in other areas for a total of 27 years. In her position with the League, she was responsible for many areas of member services including meeting planning. Over her tenure at the League, she was the first friendly, helpful voice on the phone.
Jordan’s love for North Dakota and her passion for helping cities thrive was evident in her willingness to do what it took to get the job done. Jordan instigated the City Government Week program and the Mayor for a Day essay contest for third grade students. With her stewardship, the programs achieved success in bringing to light the importance of municipal services and public service.
She once said that when she started working for the ND League she was just looking for something to do for a couple of years. “Well, I must have liked it, because it’s been 27,” Jordan said.
Jordan has worked part-time at the Adult Abused Resource Center for the last six years. Her son, Michael and family live in Missoula, Montana and daughter Sue, lives in Scottsdale, Arizona giving her good travel options. Her teenage grandsons are very active in sports in Montana so Delta Airlines sees a lot of her.
