Description

Your meeting Dream Team officially invites you to attend the 64th District 2 Meeting of the Soroptimist International of the Americas Northwestern Region which will be held on October 27-29, 2017 at the lovely Mill Casino in North Bend, Oregon.

We are continuing with last year’s theme of “One Team, One Dream” as we are a united organization all working towards one dream, bettering the lives of women and girls locally and globally. Working together as a team helps us achieve this goal with a larger impact. Over this past year I have come to realize how much of a team we are with clubs working together and sharing in the Dream programs. The area meetings were very inspiring.

The activities will kick off on Friday, October 27th with the “Huddle Up” workshop. The NWR leadership team is inviting all members to attend the workshop that was previously known as the President/President Elect training. At a minimum, the President and President Elect should be attending this workshop. Our region board will be here to share important information that is valuable for all aspects of the leadership team to create a strong team. On Saturday, October 28th, we will begin the official meeting where we will hear from our Region Leadership, receive committee reports, and attend workshops that include professional and personal development activities.

Saturday night Dinner will be Team Soroptimist where you can show your Soroptimist spirit by dressing in blue or yellow for dinner and the amazing All Star Awards.

You will not want to miss the fun and excitement at this year’s District 2 meeting. Make your reservations early for the Mill Casino in North Bend. Come early and enjoy the beautiful southern Oregon coast, shopping, or partake in some of what the casino has to offer.

Start now planning to attend and encourage your club members to come and enjoy the fun, fellowship, and opportunity to learn more about Soroptimist as we are “One Team, One Dream” making a difference.
