As you are preparing for your 2017-2018 Club Year remember CLUB GIVING IS THE FUEL THAT FIRES OUR SOROPTIMIST PROGRAMS. Has your club made Soroptimist their charity of choice? Has your club made the pledge to support the programs that change the lives of women and girls enabling them to live their dreams?

Tip of the Month: Lead the Way
SIA now has a new section on their website dedicated to leadership development! Because our members look to their Club Presidents and Board for information, direction, and guidance, it’s very important to develop and implement effective leadership skills. Visit the website to find information on general leadership topics that include conflict resolution, meetings, and creating a healthy club atmosphere.
May Challenge: Chose from the following….
- Read the Section on Light a Fire: Add Glow to Your Meetings and watch the video
- Change things up and incorporate something new and fun for a club meeting
- Invite me to your next committee meeting or event
Submit report to Amory Elizondo (firstname.lastname@example.org) for your prize!
