Why not join our first e-Club, SI Libertas, which is based in the UK? Anyone from the UK is welcome to join.

What is an E-club?

E-club monthly meetings are hosted in an online virtual platform.

SI Libertas is SIGBI’s first E-Club enabling  a group of vibrant, diverse, enthusiastic, digitally native women who wanted to change the world by being trailblazers for Members of SI Libertas believe in the aims of Soroptimism and are proud to be part of our 100 year old organisation.  The Zoom platform provides a safe place to meet and converse with like minded women.  SI Libertas was chartered on 22 September 2022 and as all Soroptimist clubs do, they perform programme action in local and international communities and enjoy fellowship among members.


2) Linked Membership

Is for women who want to be “Linked” to and involved with what’s happening in a particular Club but due to their geographical location or personal circumstances they cannot physically attend a Club’s regular meetings.

With this form of membership you can still get involved with Club projects and social events when you can.

3) Associate Membership

Associate Membership is open to women who believe in what we do, want to be involved, but can’t commit to Club Membership. You will learn about our organisation and get involved in our project work to improve the lives of women and girls through our magazine, website, social media and email updates. This is an online membership although Members can attend our annual conference and may be invited to attend local Club and regional events.
