Our Keynote Speaker
Secretary of State Elaine Marshall

In 1996, Secretary of State Elaine F. Marshall became the first woman ever elected to a statewide, executive branch office in North Carolina.

Secretary Marshall was a member of the NC State Senate before rising to statewide office. She holds a B.S. in Home Economics from the University of Maryland and a law degree from Campbell University. She has received Honorary Doctorate Degrees from Campbell University, Lees-McRae College, Meredith College and the Republic of Moldova Testemitanu State University of Medicine.


Her work experiences include teaching Home Economics in the public school and community college systems, co-ownership of a book and gift store, establishing an interior decorating business and the private practice of law.

Secretary Marshall has been very active in many civic groups in the areas of child welfare, women's issues, and agriculture and small town economic development.


Since becoming Secretary of State, she has received numerous state and national awards for leadership in technology, government innovation, and women's leadership. 



Hello Gala Goers!!

Our excitement is mounting for our gala event .   Please make sure that each individual attending registers.  Tickets include reception, one drink from the bar and a meal.  Please use the registration link above.

Guests are asked to arrive by 5:30PM so you can get checked in.  The best exit to get to the Biltmore DoubleTree is Exit 50 off I-40.  We have included a map below of the Hotel showing parking on all sides of the building.  But the best option for our event is to park in the rear of the building for the closest access to our event area.  Please remember to bring some tip cash for our bartenders, they will be most appreciative.


We are so looking forward to seeing all of you.  We have some great speakers lined up and we know it is great to be able to get together and spend time with the Democrats of District 11.
