As the Community Foundation for Eastern Washington and North Idaho, Innovia Foundation partners with people who want to make our part of the world better. Leadership Councils play a vital role in this work by providing representation from throughout Innovia’s 20-county service area.
Leadership Council members serve as ambassadors and advisors to Innovia Foundation, as well as advocates for philanthropy in general. Members are approved and appointed by the Innovia Foundation Board of Directors.
Leadership Councils perform the following functions:
Leadership Council members must be available to attend two meetings per year. The spring meeting is a two-day Regional Leadership Meeting hosted in the Spokane/Coeur d’Alene vicinity. Fall meetings take place in the local Leadership Council regions. Terms are three years with a limit of two terms.
Most leadership council activities are conducted within a council member’s region with ongoing communication via email, phone, and mail. Innovia makes every attempt to focus a council member’s in-person involvement within their own community.
