BOISE - Bank of Idaho President and CEO Jeff Newgard has accepted a position on the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.

"Being nominated was an honor. I couldn't accept fast enough," Newgard said. "A couple years ago when we were looking to expand to the west side of the state, the Boise Metro Chamber was instrumental in helping us get the lay of the land – and their support hasn't stopped since. It's an outstanding organization and I'll do whatever I can to make it even better."

Previously Bank of Idaho served as a business on the Board of Advisors at the Boise Metro Chamber. The nomination of Newgard to the 24-member Board of Directors was a natural extension.

"Bank of Idaho is Chamber material from the top down," said Chamber President and CEO Bill Connors. "From the first time they set foot in Boise, they were interested in what they could do for Boise, not the other way around. That's a rare mindset, and one we like to see in business leaders. We're excited to see where Jeff's board membership takes us."

The Boise Metro Chamber includes 1,850 businesses representing more than 120,000 employees throughout the Boise Metro area. A champion of the region's business community, the organization works with elected officials to improve the quality of life and cost of doing business. It also has numerous programs geared toward helping businesses grow and network.

Bank of Idaho opened its first Treasure Valley location in November 2018 and has been expanding its presence in western Idaho ever since. With two full-service branches in Boise and one in Nampa, The Idaho-Falls based bank now has 10 full-service locations throughout southern Idaho.
