State Rep. Neil Anderson, representing District 31 in the Idaho Legislature, has been appointed to the Idaho Endowment Fund Investment Board (EFIB), according to Chairman Dean Buffington.

Anderson was appointed by Governor C.L. "Butch" Otter to fill the EFIB position left vacant when former Rep. Max Black retired from legislative service.

An Idaho native and resident of Black-foot, Anderson is serving his first term in the Idaho Legislature. He has an associate's degree from Ricks College (now BYU-Idaho) and a bachelor's degree in business from Idaho State University. He was employed by U.S. West in various management roles and later by Edward Jones Investments. Anderson also has experience as a rancher and has had extensive community involvement, including serving as President of the Eastern Idaho Council on Industry and Energy and of the Blackfoot Chamber of Commerce.

The EFIB is an agency of the State of Idaho, headquartered in Boise, responsible for managing approximately $2 billion of investments consisting of state land grant endowment funds, the financial assets of the State Insurance Fund, the assets of the Judges' Retirement Fund, and the assets of certain state park endowments. The board consists of nine members appointed by the governor and subject to Idaho Senate confirmation.
