How to become a Soroptimist

RSVP to a meeting

Our club meetings are on the first Wednesday each month at 11:45 a.m., in-person and via Zoom. Our business meetings are on the third Wednesday starting at 5:30 p.m., in-person and via Zoom. RSVP today.

Get matched with a mentor

Any Soroptimist in the club can sponsor you for membership. Our Membership Committee Chair can match you with a suitable mentor.

Pay your annual dues

Once you pay your annual dues to the club, she will then register you as a Soroptimist with our federation. Dues are $175 per member per year (our year starts in July). If this is a hardship for you, just let us know.

Serve on at least one Soroptimist committee.

Committees are the cogs of our well-run club. With our myriad interests and projects, you are sure to find a committee that can make use of your passion, talents and expertise
