Our mission statement says we improve the lives of women and girls. Just imagine expanding that statement to "we transform the lives of these women and girls". We must give them a voice and help them raise their standards of living- around our community and around the world. What a powerful statement for any organization to say that the reason we exist is to prepare every women to succeed. No other organization does this. No other organization has accomplished this. And yet our organization has the audacity to say that's why we exist. I’m proud of that and hope you do, too. I feel honored that you chose me to be your Governor. Honored, nervous, and excited that I get to help lead us into our mission of raising the bar for women and girls.
Just imagine... walking down the street in your town and someone asks you- "Aren't you a Soroptimist?" How will they know this? Because everywhere you go, you wear your membership pin. You talk about the projects that you are working on- locally and worldwide. You talk the talk -walk the walk. The mission and vision of this organization defines who you are- you are the "movers and shakers" in your community. It's time to get out there and tell the city council during their open mike session about what you are doing to improve your community. It's time to make sure your employees are invited to your functions. Sell everyone you meet on who you are and what you do!
Your clubs will succeed in what you work together to do. It's time to set your clubs goals, plan and work towards them. My board is here to help you. Call us. Then we can celebrate together our accomplishments.
Just imagine….a party to celebrate women’s advancement and how you helped!
