The Idaho Rural Partnership (IRP) was created within the Idaho Department of Labor to join diverse public and private resources in innovative collaborations to strengthen communities and improve life in rural Idaho. The IRP is an accessible organization that listens to local problems and collaborates to develop systemwide solutions. The board of directors and general membership include representatives from profit and nonprofit organizations; local, regional, state, federal, and tribal governments; and at-large representatives. Using work groups of IRP members and current technology for delivery, IRP supports communities with new products, training, and information. The IRP believes in empowering rural communities, businesses, and individuals to help themselves and make their own decisions. This decennial report lists the 2001 board of directors and past board members, and briefly recounts the organization's history. The bulk of the report consists of brief descriptions of the tasks completed in the past decade. Accompanying each description is information on partners, outcomes, and IRP's role. Tasks are grouped under the headings of capacity-building leadership projects, publications, information technology, timber value-added, collaborative projects, growth and distress issues, conferences, and facilitations. The report concludes with a financial statement for 2000, the 2001 budget, 2000 member organizations, and the 2001 IRP calendar. (TD)
