About Soroptimist Southern Region

Soroptimist International of Southern Region, as part of Soroptimist International of the Americas, was organized October 20, 1946.  Our 13 clubs are located in Florida, Alabama and Tennessee. Our hope is to charter more clubs and include Georgia, Mississippi, Puerto Rico and The Bahamas.  Our volunteer work is geared towards fulfilling our mission through our Live Your Dream programs and other projects local to each club.

Soroptimist International of the Americas

In 2012, SIA adopted the Big Goal of Increased Collective Impact to guide our decisions, programs and activities at all levels of the organization. An African proverb states: “If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” TOGETHER we want to accomplish something greater than anything we could accomplish on our own as individuals or in our clubs. We want to ensure women and girls can live their dreams!

Our previous Big Goal of Increased Collective Impact propelled us to help women and girls to live their dreams. And it prepared us for success in our 2021-2031 Big Goal: Invest in the Dreams of Half a Million Women and Girls through Access to Education. The Dream Big Campaign will raise the financial resources needed to help us achieve our Big Goal. Learn more about it HERE!

COVID-19 and the Modified Temporary Pause COVID-19 has changed everything about our work. SIA has launched Soroptimist Forward; a set of tools to assist clubs and regions in recruiting/retaining members, fundraising, delivering our programs, and more in our new virtual world. While things have changed, one thing remains constant – our commitment to serving women and girls through our 2021-2031 Big Goal of investing in the dreams of half a million women and girls through access to education. The unpredictability of the pandemic also is constant. To manage the risk to members and the entire organization, clubs and regions wishing to meet in person must follow SIA’s risk management plan. If they wish to hold any in-person activity with non-members or an event with a large number of members, they must file a written declaration with SIA headquarters at least 45 days before the activity.

Your Southern Region Board will be keeping you updated on a continual basis through email and this website.  Rest assured, we are thinking of every one of you and are here to answer any questions you may have.  Please feel free to email us at sisr@soroptmistsr.org
