SIGBI News Briefing – 18 February 2022

CLUB NEWS FOR SOROPTIMIST NEWS – Remember to send your items of Club News on an ongoing basis to sally@sigbi.org, whenever you have some special news to report. A high—resolution, interesting photograph needs to be provided and around 50 words. Items will be selected for Soroptimist News based on originality/interest and photograph quality.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY PHOTOGRAPHS – We will be posting Clubs’ activities for International Women’s Day on the SIGBI Website, in the form of a slide show, as soon as possible after 8th March, whilst it is still “news”. Therefore, if you hold an event please send a good photograph by the following day to sally@sigbi.org and no more than 10 words (to include Club name) describing your activity. The words will be used as a caption for the photograph, so it needs to be short. The words “and District” will not be included in Club Names to save space. Thank you.

SIGBI FEES 2022 – The SIGBI fees were published in November 2021, but as we are being asked what they are for the coming year, please see the schedules below as a reminder. This relates only to the SIGBI part of the fees, not Club or Region fees.

Please note: UKPAC fees, which are paid as part of the Region fees, are being waived for the 2nd year, so the Regional fee will not include this element.
