Our history

Longtime coaches Jan Salisbury and Dawn Monroe started our organization in 2011. The group quickly attracted a select group of coaches in the Treasure Valley, holding monthly meetings to advance the coaching profession and support a local community of coaches. In 2015, we developed our first strategic plan and elected our first Board of Directors. We established the group as an Idaho Nonprofit Corporation in April 2016, and are an IRS 501(c)(6) tax exempt organization. Our fiscal year runs from June 1st through May 31st.

Thank you to the following Charter Contributors, whose generous donations supported the launch of ICF High Country: Nancy Buffington, Tom Hardison, Terri Hughes, Vicki Lundin-Taylor, Michael Marvosh, Carmen Oldenburg, Bill Rauer, Jan Salisbury, Linda Secretan, and David Spann.
