Our Club

Welcome to our Club. Please use the menu in the sidebar to navigate our site and find out more about who we are and what we do.

“I found women with a social conscience and open hearts for friendship.

Being a Soroptimist gives me such a sense of purpose.”

Soroptimist Action

Our members act to make the lives of women and girls better – locally, nationally and internationally. Each member’s contribution to our goal is welcomed and appreciated – no matter how great or small.

Take a look at the Club News page to see what we have been doing recently and to Soroptimists action for more about our projects.
