Soroptimist International Convention Helsinki 1999
Pat Black – Past SI Director of Advocacy & Past SIGBI Federation President writes:
“The SI Convention in Helsinki was the first international convention I went to, and I loved it. You will see a short film of the Convention if you CLICK HERE
In the clip you will see Imme (Irmeli Piela) from Finland who is Chair of Conference, and our own SIGBI Hilary Page MBE as International President opens the convention and is featured many times.
From SIGBI we also see Lyn Dunning, Pam Lee and Joan Smyth speaking, as well as Elizabeth Hughes for SIAM.
Past International President Ann Garvie became ambassador for the Limbs for Life project, and Past International President Thelma de Leeuw is mentioned. There are many other familiar faces!.
