In 2020 First Interstate Bank (FIB) continued to encourage participation with NIBCA as much as possible, financially or by being supportive of participation and volunteerism at NIBCA events and fundraisers (as was appropriate). FIB continued to be a Gold Sponsor for the organization and the Sign Sponsor for the Parade of Homes. FIB has allowed multiple employees to participate regularly in the NIBCA functions, committees, and councils. Angela Erickson participates on the Board, Past President’s Council, NIB-PAC, Associates Council and was awarded Life Director in 2020. Several FIB employees participate in PWB and several FIB employees participate regularly in the JT Gov Affairs monthly meeting. FIB makes it a point to participate in all major fundraisers conducted by NIBCA, either sponsorships, participation, or volunteers, often all three. One of the pillars of the FIB culture is to give back to the community. FIB enthusiastically encourages participation of employees in industry groups, service groups, non-profits, Chamber of Commerce, etc. As Ambassadors for the bank in our various communities, it is the employees who draw attention to the specific needs of our communities. In 2020, In our 6 State footprint we donated $5,000,000 to non-profits, serving 965, of which 66% of them tackled poverty. In the last 11 years they have contributed $36,300,000 and 143,000 volunteer hours to our communities. In 2020 they donated over $1MM for COVID relief and facilitated nearly 12,000 PPP loans. In Kootenai County alone in 2020, they funded over 20 grants putting $120,000 back into the community non-profits that focused on children & families, food needs, seniors, and veterans. They donated to 6 local non-profits for Coats N More, donating over $5000. At their single bank volunteer day in Kootenai County, they closed the branches at noon and donated 209 volunteers’ hours to 8 local non-profits. FIB allowed Angela Erickson to continue to participate at the IBCA as a Board Member, attend all board meetings and help on several selective task forces, working through the unbalanced financials of the association, for example. Angela is one of the two reps for the NIBCA of the Legal Defense Fund Closed Council. Angela was awarded State Life Director in 2020. FIB continues to be supportive of Angela’s participation at the National Level. FIB has committed to allowing and financing Angela to participate annually in the IBS/International Builder Show for a full week to participate in committee work, attend caucus and hone national contacts for the good of the industry in Kootenai County.
