Idaho Senate Minority Caucus Chair Cherie Buckner-Webb has been elected by her state legislative colleagues as a 2014 state director with Women In Government. Women In Government provides conferences that feature expert speakers on a variety of public policy topics and their impact on states, including healthcare reform, diabetes, emerging issues in energy policy, cervical cancer prevention, the current status of women in state legislatures, childhood obesity, public health and economic security and opportunities.

“State directors play a critical role in setting policy priorities for our organization,” said Marjorie Maginn, president and executive director of Women In Government, in a news release. “Senator Buckner-Webb is a recognized leader in her state and we are excited that she will now share her leadership skills with other women policymakers throughout the country.”
