Project Coordinator

Lindsey Beacham’s interest in community development started while taking freshman-level architecture classes at the University of Idaho. Her interest increased while living in the Portland, Oregon community of St. Johns. She found it fascinating how the community retained a small-town feel, similar to her hometown in central Idaho, while nestled in a large metro area.

Working for major corporations and small businesses in graphic and web design has given Lindsey the knowledge to assist CDA 2030 in crafting communications for partners and the community. She enjoys the opportunity to contribute creative suggestions to further the development of actions.

Beacham and her two kids regularly bike commute to work and school. When she and her husband are not fixing up their forever home, they can be found in the mountains or on a lake with their kids.

Volunteer Board of Directors

The CDA 2030 Board of Directors is charged with guiding and supporting the CDA 2030 vision by raising awareness of the Implementation Plan and ensuring the sustainability of the nonprofit organization by broadly engaging the community. Each year dedicated community leaders are selected to serve on the Board of Directors, chosen from businesses, government agencies, education, and civic and community-based organizations to represent the broad interests and talents of the community.

Vacancies on the board are filled by the Nominations Committee which consists of five to seven board members and at least two non-board community members. They also nominate officers and members of the Executive Committee each year.

I’m excited to be on the CDA 2030 board because I believe Coeur d’Alene can continue to develop conscientiously with affordable housing, healthcare, childcare & education for all, and increased public awareness of the issues that face our water resources.
