The Committee

The UK Programme Action Committee comprises the PAC chairmen for the 17 Regions – who between them represent the entire membership of the UK – plus Chairman, Vice Chairman (also a Regional PAC chairman), Secretary, Treasurer and Website & Promotions Officers. We have Parliamentary Lobbyists, covering the Scottish Parliament, Welsh Assembly and the Northern Ireland Assembly. For Westminster, the emphasis is only on the issue of FGM (female genital mutilation).

The Committee meets quarterly, normally in the centre of the country in Solihull at the Ramada Hotel.


The Ramada is a very short distance from Junction 5 of the M42. With extended facilities, 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 £20 to cover coffees and lunch. The day finishes at 3.00pm promptly.

Following the death of June Muir, the newly appointed Treasurer for UKPAC, sadly we have to find a replacement. applications are welcomed from any interested Soroptimists.

Details and an application form are available.  Job Description   Application form
