President’s Message 2015-2016

I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to be President of the club for the 2015/16 year as it promises to be an exciting one for Soroptimist International of Vancouver.
We are building on a host of actions from last year to help us develop as a club for the benefit of our members, Soroptimist International and the charities we support.
Our wonderful membership is determined to build on our strenghts, which leads to my theme for the year of ‘Celebrate Technology’.
We are putting together programmes that I hope will entertain, inform and educate and which will give us opportunities to work together for our chosen charities too.
Our club prides itself on being friendly and welcoming, so if you have come to this page as a non-member, I would encourage you to come along to one of our meetings and find out what we are all about – we would love to see you – simply click on “Contact Us” to let us know you are coming.
-- Emoke Zimmermann, Club President
