Have you taken the SIA Snapshot online survey?

You are invited to take the June 2009 Soroptimist Snapshot online survey. Look for the link in your email this week.

There are just 7 quick questions and should only take about 5 minutes of your time. The intent of this survey is to gauge interest and satsifaction in their quarterly publication of the Best for Women magazine. Some of the questions are multiple choice with an opportunity to write what you’d like see improved in future editions. I find the most helpful section is the Renaissance Campaign tips/tricks. They are very helpful for SOLT and generate new ideas for the committee chairs.

For more information on the results, visit the Soroptimist International of the America’s membership section in the members area (scroll to the very bottom: Soroptimist Snapshot Survey Reports and open the MSWord docs).

There are also polls in the general members area that you can participate in (see the right side panel). One example is: Would your club pay a nominal fee for customized services from headquarters (e.g., personalized ads and brochures, meeting planning)? As of today there have been 596 votes: Yes 47% | No 53%. What’s your opinion?

We’re growing …

Wonderful news from S.I. Eastern Canada Region – we have a new club to charter in York Region and the best news yet is our numbers now register over 300!  FYI for our newer members, we needed to get our numbers up to maintain a separate Region.  If we stayed below 300 members there was the possibility of having to join with Western Canada or even part of the northern States!

Thanks to all of our members for the wonderful job of recruiting.  Soroptimist is growing and it is a privilege to tell other women about the wonderful work we do and give them the opportunity to share in the sense of community and support we share with other women and girls.  Yes we really do rock!
