Soroptimist News

Soroptimist News is going online

All Members will receive a letter about the transition from the current printed magazine to an online version. The February 2019 issue of Soroptimist News will be the last that Members will receive through the post, and our heartfelt thanks go to Sheila Manchester, who has been Editor of Soroptimist News since 2004. Her dedication and patience in producing the paper copy for 15 years is very much appreciated by us all.

From May 2019 there will be an App for Members to download to their mobile phones/devices and an online page-turner version for those who don’t have a mobile phone that can use Apps.

Members on email have already been sent the letter, and it will be posted to Members without email week commencing 4 February 2019. A copy of the letter is below, detailing the reasons for the decision.

Thank you to all Members who have taken the trouble to write to us in support of this change. We hope that you will all enjoy reading the new online version, and will circulate it to other Organisations.

We have again received a lot of non-delivery reports from the emails sent, so please can we ask Members to ensure that we have their correct email address to avoid this happening. If you have an email address, but have not received the letter below, please send your correct email address to
