Leadership Councils

Leadership Council members serve as ambassadors and advisors to Innovia Foundation throughout our 20-county region, and advocate for philanthropic investments in their local communities. Members are approved and appointed by the Innovia Foundation Board of Directors.

Leadership Responsibilities

Member Qualifications

Time Commitment and Travel

Leadership Council members must be available to attend a minimum of two meetings per year. The spring meeting is generally a two-day Regional Leadership Meeting hosted in the Spokane/Coeur d’Alene vicinity. Summer and 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.
