Making the case for IBE membership is straightforward and impactful. We connect the skills and expertise of business leaders to the education system and to the legislative process. We’re the only organization in Idaho to bring these critical players together. When you join us, a trio of membership benefits will empower you to:

Optimize Your Impact

  • Through the extensive IBE network, you’re prepped for and placed in opportunities where you can use your expertise to deliver real value. You’ll make a difference. Whether your time and energy is directed at the statehouse level, or the schoolhouse level, you’ll see your time and company’s investment pay off.
  • You’ll be invited to take part in, and represent IBE, in exclusive member forums, policy discussions and business presentations to influence education policy.

Amplify Your Leadership

  • You’ll supercharge your network, surrounding yourself with Idaho’s most dedicated, sincere and studied education advocates – a who’s who of business, education and government. Your work with IBE will further your influence and company’s efforts in transforming education to create the skilled and educated workforce our businesses and economy need.
  • You’ll gain access to key political, business, education and community leaders.
  • You’ll be considered for appointments to gubernatorial, legislative, Department of Education, and select commissions and committees.

Deepen Your Expertise

  • No other organization in Idaho understands the complex intersection of education, business, and government like IBE. We go deeper- and you will too. You’ll become an invaluable, informed, influential resource for your company and our community.
  • You’ll receive regular communications about Idaho’s education system including up-to-date news, data, trends and policy briefings.
  • You’ll gain access to programs that focus on Idaho’s education system, its political context, policy framework, key initiatives and what it means for your business.

Businesses can join IBE as a Trustee, Corporate or Sole Proprietor. Typically the CEO/Owner or a senior leader acts as the IBE contact for the business. Trustee memberships range from $3000 to $10,000 annually. Corporate memberships are based on number of employees and range from $500 to $2000 annually. Sole Proprietorship memberships are $250 annually.

Retired business leaders can also become members of IBE. These individuals are people who have achieved senior leadership positions in their former business life. Individuals can join IBE for $250.

IBE is a 501c3 nonprofit, nonpartisan coalition of Idaho’s best and brightest business leaders who believe that Great Schools are Good for Business. Our EIN is 20-3565109 and membership dues are tax-deductible per IRS regulations.
