Our featured speaker was Mr. Bill Jhung Director of the North Idaho College Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at the Post Falls Campus. Bill explained what the SBDC has to offer and brought  Mr. Ben Toews President of Bullet Tools to tell the story of how Bullet has grown and what valuable lessons were learned in Bill’s “Entrepreneurial Leadership Training Course“. Ben’s company Bullet Tools was featured a few years back on the ABC morning television show “Good Morning America”.

Burt Rutan

We were honored to have a surprise attendee Mr. Burt Rutan known the world over for his aircraft designs over a 46 year period in the California desert before moving to Coeur d Alene several years ago. Everyone in the group had time to visit with Mr. Rutan in addition to others like Murdo Cameron of Cameron Aircraft just to name a few.

Another great IDA networking event.
