2024 Annual Breakfast

The Idaho Democratic Women’s Caucus wholeheartedly invites Democratic Women throughout Idaho to our 2024 Annual Breakfast & Membership Meeting. This year’s meeting will be held on Saturday, March 9, 2024, at 7:45 am at the Boise Centre in Boise. Tickets for the breakfast are $30.00 per person.

Our featured speaker is National Federation of Democratic Women Western Regional Director Audrey Dempsey. She also serves as the President of the Nevada Federation of Democratic Women and is the founding Chair of the Nevada Women’s Caucus. She entered the political field in 2007 as a photographer for the Culinary Union. This gave her the opportunity to meet all of the Presidential candidates. When she met former President Obama she was hooked and worked not only as a photographer but a Precinct Captain. She has stayed involved ever since.

After the breakfast portion of the event, we will hold our annual membership meeting. At our membership meeting, we shall be electing the President, Secretary, and Regional Directors for Regions 2, 4 and 6.

We encourage all Idahoans to join our organization and to work together in electing more Democratic women into public office. To become a member or renew your existing membership, you must pay the annual membership dues. Annual membership dues are $20. Seniors (65 and older) and students can join for $10.

For more information about this event, please contact our organization via email at BALLOU2350@msn.com or find us on Facebook.

Watch the Legislative Preview

In case you missed it, the 2024 Virtual Legislative Preview was a resounding success. We would like to express our gratitude to Representative Ilana Rubel and Senator Melissa Wintrow for taking the time out of their busy schedules to discuss the upcoming legislative session. For those who were unable to attend, you can watch the recording on YouTube using this link. It was a great way to kick off the New Year!
