Community Representatives

Community Relations Representatives work closely with community leaders and organizations to build and maintain lasting, strategic relationships. Their work helps to support our company’s business objectives and increase shareowner value, while at the same time enhancing the quality of life in our communities.

The representatives actively participate in the communities they serve by managing Idaho Power’s local contributions and implementing the company’s economic development initiatives.
