Frequently Asked Questions

What does the word ‘Soroptimist’ mean?

It comes from the latin ‘soror’ (sister) and ‘optima’ best – so, the best of sisters!

How much does it cost to be a Soroptimist?

We usually reckon our subscription is less than the cost of buying one coffee a week in Starbucks. We can be more detailed when you contact us.

Do I have to attend every meeting?

No, few members achieve that in any one year! Obviously, the more often you can come, the quicker you will get to understand what is going on, make friends, and get involved.

When are the meetings and where are they held?

We meet twice a month, on a Tuesday evening: the first Tuesday of the month the meeting starts at 7.45 pm and there is usually a speaker.  For most of the year, these take place at Brocton Golf Club, (with an optional meal beforehand). On the third Tuesday of the month the meeting takes place at 7.30pm – on Zoom at the moment.  No meetings are arranged in August and December, but there are often social gatherings.
