Pre-conference: Federation Programme Action Committee Forum – Thursday Day

Before the Opening Ceremony on Thursday night, Soroptimists were already hard at work meeting to discuss Programme, including best ways of working with friendship links to improve the lives of even more women and girls, and how details of our Programme Work is filtered up to the highest levels of the United Nations.

The meeting took place from 9.00 to 15.30 at St David’s Hotel and Spa in Cardiff Bay.  FPAC Chairs from nearly all the  countries of Soroptimist International Great Britain and Ireland (SIGBI) Ltd took part, plus there were lots of silent observers, making for a very interactive and interesting meeting.
