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 roughly 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?

Apart from August and December we meet twice a month, on a Tuesday evening. Our new venue is Brocton Hall Golf Club, a beautiful setting.

The first meeting of the month (the first Tuesday) starts with a meal in Brocton Hall Golf Club’s restaurant at 6.15pm. Having the meal is entirely voluntary, but it’s informal and a good way to get to know people. . The meeting proper starts at 7.45pm, and there is normally a speaker. The second meeting is on the third Tuesday of each month and starts at 7.30pm, as there is no meal. This meeting is usually given over to the business of the Club, planning and reviewing club activities, as well as those taking place in our Region or the Soroptimist world as a whole. Most meetings finish around 9.00-915pm.

There are no formal meetings in August and December, but there are often social gatherings.
