There is now room for even more observers, who are encouraged to sit in on our Saturday meetings, this isn’t just for Programme Action officers; all Soroptimists are very welcome, whatever position (or, indeed, none) held in a club.  Why not come along and join us at our next meeting; we’d love to see you – just mention it to your Regional PAC Chairman and she’ll book you in. There will be a charge of £25 to cover coffees and lunch. The day finishes at 3.00pm promptly. UKPAC also holds virtual meetings as and when required.





Let’s make it happen
