My name is Linda Johnson, and I have been a member of Soroptimists since 2006. I have held office in my club Tynemouth,Whitley Bay and District as President two consecutive years and Programme Action Officer also Regional Rep. I was proud to be asked to be Regional President.
My theme for the year is:
A Advocacy, Action, Awareness.

E Education, Enpower, Enjoy !
As a region we do some wonderful work with many, many different project. I would like us to build on what we do best, If clubs could think about the 17 sustainable development goals which fit in with a lot of our work.
Our organisation is proud that it has a voice and representation at the United Nations. This recognition is given because Soroptimists have an established, active international network and can evidence our commitment, action and impact on the lives of women and girls on a global scale.
We as a region are very active let us try in 2017/2018 see if we can encourage other like minded people to join us.
I look forward to seeing and hearing about your projects.
Most of all have FUN ,FRIENDSHIP and ENJOY !
