Soroptimist International Conventions

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!.

Dr Jane Zimmerman from SISWP – a Canadian born Australian was installed as the new President of Soroptimist International”

Peace is our Unifying Purpose –  You will see first photo above an aerial photo of the amazing peace messages that were shared with delegates, it certainly captures some very key messages from our then Past International President Lynn Dunning (see above pic 2) and the four federation Presidents.
