President’s page

It is a great pleasure to write to you as President.

My theme for this coming year – and also for our 2024 conference – is ‘Rise up and Roar’. We are an international organisation with 66,000 members in over 120 countries circulating the globe with a voice at the United Nations. This gives us a sense of belonging.

It also gives us a purpose that we share together. When we are working on projects that support people, planet, partnership, peace or prosperity it is our common purpose as Soroptimists that galvanises and unites us.

The Conference in 2024 has been my major focus this year and will continue to be so.  The conference planning committee have met many times to organise a very interesting and varied range of speakers for 11th May 2024 at The Wrightington Hotel near Wigan. This venue is just off the M6 and centrally placed within our region. I do hope you will join us and make this event a roaring success. Booking details are available here.

Let us continue to rise up and roar about the excellent work we do, encourage others to join and really make a difference to the lives of women and girls at home and abroad.

Thank you to my fellow Soroptimists for welcoming me to this role and supporting me going forward. I hope to meet and get to know you better during the coming year.

Pam Wright President SI South Lancashire, 2023-24
