Democratic Women’s Caucus Breakfast With Liyah Babayan
The Idaho Democratic Women’s Caucus wholeheartedly invite Democratic Women throughout Idaho to our Annual Membership Meeting. The Meeting is on Sunday, March 8, 2020, at 7:30 am at the Riverside Hotel, which is located at 2900 W. Chinden Blvd. in Boise. Tickets to the breakfast are $35.00 per person and can be bought on Eventbrite.
We are proud to announce that our featured speaker will be Armenian refugee and businesswoman Liyah Babayan. Her talk is titled, “From the Crumbs of the American Dream”. She will sell her book, Liminal: A Refugee Memoir and sign books after breakfast.
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 complete the Registration Form and pay the annual membership dues. Annual membership dues are $20. Seniors (65 and older) and students can join for $10. Members are encouraged to attend and participate in the breakfast meeting as we will be electing the Idaho Democratic Women’s Caucus Secretary and Treasurer along with Regional Directors for regions 2, 4, and 6.
Although our annual membership meeting centers on enjoying a great breakfast and discussion, the agenda also includes the election of individuals to the above=aforementioned leadership positions. We will also be filling vacant positions for a Regional Director in Region 1 and 7. Therefore, we encourage our members to stand for election. Consequently, if you wish to be considered for an open position, please submit your name and a summary of your qualifications to Gini Ballou. If you seek to hold a Regional position, please include the region. Region information is available on our Officer page.
Additionally, don’t forget that we are seeking nominees for the Dottie Stimpson and the Distinguished Woman awards. The Stimpson award honors an IDWC member who demonstrates perseverance, persistence, patience, passion, commitment, and leadership. IDWC co-founder Dottie Stimpson inspired the award. The Distinguish Woman award, on the other hand, is a way for us to recognize the contribution of a rising star. You can submit a nominee by filling out the online Nomination Form. All nominees must be active IDWC Members. Submissions are due by February 26th.
