General Membership Luncheon
Shelly O’Quinn, CEO of the Inland Northwest Community Foundation will be speaking on the topic of ‘Looking Beyond the Numbers: Vision and Impact.’ A local leader in government and community development, Shelly joined Inland Northwest Community Foundation in 2017. As a former Spokane County Commissioner, Shelly earned a reputation as a team builder and agent of change, representing Spokane County interests on 20 regional and statewide boards and commissions.
The Inland Northwest Community Foundation manages almost 500 funds and assets totaling over $110 million. Striving to enrich communities by connecting people who care with causes that matter, they have awarded nearly $60 million in grants and scholarships in the region since 1974. As the Foundation pursues an aggressive goal to reach $250 million within the next 10 years they are looking beyond the numbers to ensure they are increasing community engagement, leveraging strategic partnerships and impacting communities to create lasting change.
The Chamber will also be celebrating the graduation of the 2015-2017 Sandpoint Leadership class. Leadership Sandpoint is a program of the Chamber designed to facilitate the development and growth of the leaders of tomorrow and provides opportunity to interact with community members as the class explores community issues.
