A Letter from Governor Sara:

Dear Soroptimist Members, Friends & Guests:

WELCOME to the 39th Northeastern Region annual Spring Conference. It is truly a “New Day” with new ideas and energy awaiting our horizon. We look forward to many new opportunities to inspire and empower women and girls around the world to live their dream and YOU are the key to the success of our Soroptimist mission.

Please accept this invitation to join us in celebration on Saturday April 2, 2011. This will be a day dedicated to THANKING YOU, INSPIRING YOU, SUPPORTING YOU and HAVING FUN TOGETHER.

I am thrilled to begin our “New Day” conference celebration with our Official Visitor, SIA President- Elect, Patricia (Pat) Donohue in the morning session. She will not only give us an update from our Federation but will also share the vision of Soroptimist International of the Americas in her presentation “Embracing Change.”

The rest of the business session will include: (1) voting on the region strategic plan and the 2011-2012 annual budget, (2) building consensus on region-level projects in club-building and retention, fundraising for local and international projects, and public awareness; and (3) learning from each other through club highlights and “speed networking”.

The day would not be complete without celebrating the wonderful accomplishments of clubs, members, and the winners of the Region-level Soroptimist Women’s Opportunity Award, Violet Richardson Award, and Ruby Award. We welcome guests, potential Soroptimist members and others join us at the luncheon to share in the celebration.

A dinner social event will take place Friday night in Downtown Providence for anyone wishing to arrive early. A Soroptimist “Marketplace” will be available for any member or club to promote their items or services during breaks. And a special raffle drawing for a FREE Soroptimist International Convention registration will take place onsite!

Our Region has done amazing work through the years, and will continue in the future.

I look forward to seeing all of you.

Best to you!

Governor Sara Nichols
