IACP Seeks Executive Director

The Idaho Association of Community Providers (“IACP”), a 501(c)(6) nonprofit organization representing Idaho’s association of providers supporting individuals with behavioral health and developmental disabilities, seeks an Executive Director to lead the association’s growth and strategic direction.
IACP was formed in 2014 with the merging of several community-based provider associations formerly representing mental health providers, developmental disabilities agencies, case management, supported living, and addiction counseling and treatment. With our unified association, IACP works together with all branches of government to support comprehensive community services which meet the need of Idahoans with behavioral health and developmental disabilities. As a collaborative membership, IACP’s mission is to build an exceptional and sustainable network of community services ensuring least restrictive care and quality outcomes for the Idahoans we serve.
Reporting directly to the Board of Directors, the Executive Director will also work closely with Membership Subgroups representing services comprised of Supported Living, Case Management, Behavioral Health, Developmental Disability Agencies, and Community Supported Employment. As Executive Director, the new leader will represent IACP and its interests and recommendations to reduce barriers to quality service and service delivery with public and private stakeholders and partnerships. Successful candidates will exhibit evidence of a strong public policy background, a history of fostering relationships and partnerships, and demonstrate team leadership and resource development skills.

The Executive Director develops and implements strategic planning which supports the association’s mission, vision, values, and goals. The Board of Directors delegates responsibility to the Executive Director for management of day-to-day operations and with the authority to carry out these responsibilities in accordance with the established direction and policies. The Executive Director provides direction and guidance to the Board of Directors as it carries out its governance function.
As a focus among chief responsibilities, the Executive Director will:   
  • Support the mission and vision of IACP and strive to uphold its purpose as directed by the Board of Directors and informed by IACP Membership.
  • Keep informed and knowledgeable of all regulation, policy, and practices affecting the operation of IACP and community services.
  • Establish cooperative relationships and partnerships with other organizations, associations, and governmental agencies and represent IACP in the communities served.
  • Oversee the financial viability and stability of IACP with sound fiscal planning and implementation.
  • Provide input into developing, maintaining, and supporting a strong Board of Directors and workgroups engaged in providing strategic direction for the association. 
  • Serve as chief spokesperson for the association and develop and maintain collaborative relationships with stakeholders throughout the community.
