~All About Communication~

Republican women from around the state of Idaho gathered in Twin Falls for the annual Fall meeting of the Idaho Federation of Republican Women (IFRW) on October 11-12, 2019.   Karen Wright from Weiser attended this year’s event. 

The two-day event began with training sessions on key communication tools to help lead the way to victories in 2020, followed by a fundraising reception and dinner where they were honored to have special guest speaker First Lady Teresa Little.  

IFRW President Janalee Woolf remarked, “The IFRW Fall meeting was a great chance for women from around the state to meet and share ideas.   The collaboration with each other along with the training we received will help us strengthen our clubs and Republican values in our communities.  The friendships that evolve  will keep us connected as we work together to elect our Republican candidates.”

Regional Director and former Representative Maxine Bell remarked, “We felt like the Constitutional Officers were speaking to us as women who are working in the political field and letting us know about issues in depth that are important in our state. It was very close and personal to us.”  

A highlight of the meeting was when the IFRW was able to present Idaho GOP Executive Director, Frank Terraferma with a $500 check to support the state GOP to help with resources to ensure we see GOP victories across the state of Idaho in 2020. 

The Idaho Federation of Republican Women promotes Republican principles and educates Republican women in the governmental process.   The Federation provides assistance to local Republican Women’s Clubs.
