Join Our Club
Dear Prospective Soroptimist Member:
Soroptimist International of Humboldt Bay (SIHB) is delighted that you are considering membership
in our organization. Soroptimist is an international organization for business and professional
women working through service projects to improve the lives of women and girls in our local
communities and throughout the world. SIHB is involved in a variety of projects and fundraisers to
support this mission.
Our club meets the 1st, 3rd, and 4th Thursday mornings of months Sept-May, 7:00 – 8:00 a.m. at the
Red Lion. We have a business meeting on the 2nd Week of the Month (Wednesday Evening) at 5:30
p.m. at Prosperity Center in Eureka. We have no meetings in June, July and August, although we
often have committee meetings and social functions in the summer.
As you consider becoming part of SIHB, it’s important that you understand what is expected of our
members. Although we all have our own unique way of contributing to the organization and our
projects, members are expected to attend meetings as often as possible– and to participate on
committee(s) and in our fundraisers and other projects to the extent they are able.
There are also financial commitments associated with membership in SIHB:
Annual dues are $150.00 at joining ($75.00 if you join after January 1) and due in May each
year for the following club year which begins in July.
Monthly dues are $50.00 per month payable at the first meeting of the month for the
months of September through May. There are no monthly dues in the summer. Monthly
dues include breakfast at the Thursday morning meetings.
Participation in other in-club fundraisers such as Change Drives, Happy Dollars, and
Holiday and Spring Mixers are at member’s option.
Again, we are pleased you are considering becoming part of our dynamic and inspiring
organization. If you have not already done so, we would like to invite you to be our guest at one of
our Thursday morning meetings. If you are interested in visiting our club – or if you have any
questions about membership, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
