We are celebrating a huge milestone this year – 22 years of improving the lives of women and girls in our Surrey/Delta communities.
This year, we have much to be proud of.
- We successfully hosted our second Respecting Our Daughters Fundraising Gala with exceptional results .
- We generated new public awareness about our organization and mission.
- We have increased our program goals by:
- supporting more women through all of our awards programs
- growing and maintaining our signature Totally Beautiful Girl’s Group
- continuing to support significant women’s organizations in our community
- launching our Dream It, Be It program.
- We found a new Soroptimist home here at the Surrey Business Services and Co-op Centre.
Our membership – our members – are our most important asset. Without them, we do not accomplish anything. WTH them, we can achieve whatever we want to. Keeping members engaged is our number 1 priority, and moving forward, we will be working with the membership committee to ensure that all of our members are taken care of, listened to, and continue to enjoy a fulfilling Soroptimist experience.
I have so much gratitude for the work done by all our members. A huge thank you to our executive who work hard to make sure our club functions at all levels; to our committee chairs who set goals, plan and ensure events run smoothly, and keep our members involved and informed. And to all of our members – thank you for your incredible spirit, commitment and passion. As we welcome new women to our club, we inspire to help them be the best OF women as we continue to be the best FOR women.
At the SIA convention in Vancouver two years ago, one powerful message made a big impression on me. ONE PASSION – MANY WOMEN. That’s US… WE are the faces of these many women. WE are changing lives. WE are using our gifts and talents to make a difference in our community. WE are contributing to the strategic goals set out by SIA to have a significant impact on the lives of the women and girls we serve. Together, our Collective Impact will strengthen us as a club, will make our community a heathier and safer place to live, and will position us as an organization in our community that is sustainable, respected and sought out.
Congratulations to us for our first 20 years – now let’s move forward to the next 20 years.
Linda Cunliffe, President
