Membership is open to all women – the only qualification is that you need to believe in what we do! We welcome visitors to all meetings, and you are more than welcome to come and see us first before making any commitment.
Like all clubs or membership organisations, we need to charge a membership fee or subscription to cover running costs.
Each Soroptimist club pays a small annual fee to the Regional organisation (Cheshire, North Wales and Wirral), and a larger fee to our Federation (Soroptimist International Great Britain and Ireland – SIGBI). These help the central organisations to pay for meetings and other essential running costs, and they also cover the production of four digital magazines a year.
Each club then sets their own membership fee to reflect their own running costs, which can be different from club to club eg. some clubs need to pay more for the facilities used as a meeting room than others.
At Llandudno Soroptimists, we try to keep the annual costs as low as possible but we do need to cover:
Stationery and member badges etc
Poppy wreath in November
Charter dinner costs
We offer the option of paying by monthly standing order if that is preferable.
