We are a diverse group of women, all ages and different occupations. Our common cause is to be
a "global voice for women" and membership in Soroptimist International allows us to impact the
lives of women and girls locally, nationally and around the world.
Attendance at meetings is not mandatory, but it helps you stay current with all the club’s activities
and helps to get to know other members. Most of the work is done by Committees which meet at
discretion and use email to organize and plan their work.
We “go dark” (meaning, Soroptimist is not officially in session) in July or August; however we enjoy
so many of the summer community activities that we still get together as a group and participate.
Dues are approximately $170 a year and are payable each June for the coming year. Dues are
prorated according to the month that you become a member. A set portion of dues supports our
Federation as well as our Region area. These figures are set through the headquarters of
Soroptimist International of the Americas and Founder Region.
All new members usually have a “sponsor” and this is the person who recommended you as a
member to the club. If you don’t know someone personally to be your sponsor, we will gladly have a
member fill that role for you. The role of the sponsor is to answer questions, introduce you to other
members and help you get off to a good beginning.
If you are interested in learning more about us we would like to invite you to attend one of our
meetings. We have a social time during which you can get to know us a little more informally. We
certainly look forward to hearing from you and hope that you would consider membership for the
Soroptimist International of Martinez, CA. All rights reserved. 9/20/2018
