The North Idaho Pride Alliances envisions a community where all of its members are valued, respected, and affirmed. The Board of Directors helps oversee the organization's operations. They serve as Pride ambassadors & connectors within the North Idaho region. Board members contribute to and participate in the governance, events, and programs of the organization. They are our Leadership team. We invite anyone who wants to make a difference locally for LGBTQ+ people and advance the spirit of inclusion in North Idaho to be a part of our vision and action for positive change.  


Working with advisors and the Community Builders team, the Board of Directors sets the strategic plan for the organization.

Our 2020-2022 long term strategic goals:

  • Build the capacity of our organization at every level so that we may have all the resources, in the form of information, people, and funding, necessary to move forward in our work with the greatest possible effect.

  • Create a world in which our young people may grow up and be educated with freedom from fear of violence, bullying, and other forms of discrimination, regardless of their real or perceived gender identity or sexual orientation or that of their families.

  • Make our vision and our message accessible to the broadest range of ethnic and cultural communities, ending the isolation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people within those communities.

  • Work toward full inclusion of LGBTQ+ persons within their chosen communities of faith.

  • Create a society in which all LGBTQ+ persons may enjoy, in every aspect of their lives, full civil and legal equality and may participate fully in all the rights, privileges, and obligations of full citizenship in this country.


We are recruiting community members to serve on our 2021 Leadership team!

The board is currently seeking expertise in the areas of accountancy, philanthropy and fundraising, medical/mental health, community organizing and policy, marketing and media, and public relations, amongst others. All board members are expected to acknowledge and honor the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals, make a personal financial commitment (no matter how small, every penny counts), and dedicate time and professional expertise toward strategic goals. 

Interested parties should be willing to be active participants in fundraising, community engagement, and mission actualization. All board members should also exhibit strong leadership skills, creative vision, personal integrity, enthusiasm, and effectively work with the other board members, advisors, volunteers, and community members.

We are committed to building board leadership that is diversely reflective of the community we serve and actively seek applications from lesbians, gay men, women, bisexual and transgender individuals, people of color, people living with HIV, and people with disabilities.
