A Letter from Governor Sara:
Dear Soroptimist Members, Friends & Guests:
to the 39th
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
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!
