Federation President Ann invites you to Conference

Ann Hodgson2I have lived in Wales for over 20 years, and have enjoyed the wonderful friendship and hospitality shown to me by fellow Welsh Soroptimists, so it is really exciting that the 2017 conference will be held in Cardiff at the iconic Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay.

Cardiff Bay offers heaps to do – eateries, funky bars, boat trips and cultural attractions; and you are only a short distance from Cardiff City Centre which offers a fantastic shopping experience so come early and make the most of your stay in Wales.

The conference theme, Step Up, Lead the Way was chosen to encourage all of us to lead the way in terms of growing our organisation and securing its future.

I believe that the future of Soroptimist International of Great Britain & Ireland is every member’s responsibility, and that we ALL have a leadership role to play in securing its future. Members of the Federation Management Board, Federation Councillors, Regional or Club Officers cannot do it alone. We must ALL play our part in attracting (and retaining) today’s women to our Organisation.

My theme can equally apply to Programme Action and our project work, and there are many examples of your project work where Clubs have lead the way in terms of taking action or advocating for change which educates, empowers or enables women and girls to reach their fullest potential.

Join us for this unique once-a-year event as hundreds of members come together to share experiences, get inspired and celebrate what being a Soroptimist really means.
