Frequently Asked Questions

You may find the answers to some of your questions in the following FAQ’s:

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.

What is the timing of the meetings?

The first meeting of the month (the first Tuesday) starts with a meal in the Moat House restaurant at 6.15pm. This is entirely voluntary. 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.
