At our AGM on April 4th 2019 we were very pleased to welcome Frances Rothwell as our new president.Frances made the following statement:
As president I have put together a programme of events for the coming year. My theme is ‘Women’s Lives’ and I hope that this will be stimulating and informative and I am pleased to have a good selection of speakers from various fields.
I have also tried to incorporate regular opportunities for social events as I think that this is an important part of any club and helps to reinforce friendships and retain members.
Rather than having large fundraisers I have opted for smaller events but again regularly throughout the year so that members can have the opportunity of enjoying at least some of them. I also hope that events can be used to raise our profile within the community and possibly attract new members. I look forward to a happy and rewarding year ahead with you all, furthering our work, fulfilling our Soroptimist aims and having fun.
