Programme Action & Council Meetings

The clubs in our region meet together four times a year on designated Saturdays. The meetings take place between 9.00 and 13.00 and are hosted by each club in turn. These meetings consist of two parts: a Regional Council business meeting and a Programme Action meeting.
Each meeting has a separate agenda. The Regional Council meeting agenda includes tabled reports on regional activities from members of the Region’s Executive and discussions on current issues relevant to SIGBI, which may require a vote showing the Region’s preference for action.  The Programme Action agenda includes speakers on issues and from areas related to Programme Action along with discussions on issues relevant to Programme Action locally, nationally and internationally which again may require a vote.
Every member of SI Midland Chase is entitled to attend both of these meetings and each club has a designated voting member who attends and who votes for the club on any issue where a vote is taken.
During the Covid-19 pandemic meetings took place as virtual meetings using Zoom technology which led to an increase in the number of Soroptimists attending. Face to face meetings were the norm prior to this with meetings held around the region. Going forward meetings will be a mixture of face-to-face and virtual meetings to cater for everybody’s accessibility requirements with a permanent meeting place identified every year for the face-to-face meetings.
