SIGBI has produced an A3 poster that you can use to advertise your events.
This poster will also print A4 simply by choosing A4 in the print settings. All the elements will be re-sized proportionately.
A poster has been produced of the back page of Soroptimist News December 2015. Professional printing is recommended, and as the poster does not include contact details, it should be used only as part of a larger display that includes such information.
The following documents include advice on using some of the materials in this toolkit, as well as other useful information:

Raise the profile of your Club by awarding a “Volunteer of the Year” Certificate to someone in your Community who has given exceptional service on a voluntary basis. Ask local charities or businesses to nominate someone, and have a panel within the Club to make the final selection. Invite the winner (and Press) to an event where the Certificate can be presented.
You can use the certificate template below (which is in PowerPoint format), or create your own:

Some Clubs have requested that gift vouchers be developed for them to use to offer “discounts” on Membership to women to encourage them to join, so we have developed two gift vouchers that can be used by Clubs., one for Associate Membership and one for Club Membership.
The gift vouchers are both intended to be issued and completed electronically and forwarded by email. They could be used as Christmas/Birthday/Mothers Day gifts, or as a gift for a speaker at a Club meeting, for example.
Full details of how to use the vouchers is given in the letter below. The Club Membership Gift Voucher can be downloaded, and the Associate Membership Gift Voucher (pictured) can be ordered from SIGBI HQ.
