Club Awards and Recognition

CLUB AWARDS AND RECOGNITION

The following awards and recognitions acknowledge clubs who are participating in Soroptimist programs of service.  Awards will be presented to club President’s at the Spring Conference Awards Banquet on Friday, April 21, 2017.  Please make sure you attend or send a representative from your club.  The following are the categories for which a club may receive an award or recognition:

GOVERNOR’S CLUB AWARD

Recognition is given to club presidents, by the Governor, for their participation in the four areas of the SIA “Shaping the Future Campaign.”  Presidents must return the completed award form to Governor Ginger by March 15, 2017.  Clubs also must submit Program Focus Reports for each event or program.

DISTINGUISHED SOROPTIMIST RECOGNITION

A distinguished Soroptimist is a member who has made a personal commitment to developing her club and enhancing her own Soroptimist experience by recruiting a new member and accomplishing at least five additional club activities during the 2016-2017 club year.

VICTORY AWARD

This award is given each year at Spring Conference to the club who has shown the greatest gain in membership.  The award is based on the statistics available to the Region Treasurer from SIA.  (Be sure to send in a 5008 each time you induct a new member.  Your club’s membership figures are based on these forms.)  If there is a tie, one club will keep the trophy until Fall Workshop and the other club will keep the trophy until the following Spring Conference.

FIRST TIME ATTENDEE RECOGNITION

Recognition will be given at the Saturday, April 22, 2017, Business Session, to all members attending Camino Real Region Spring Conference for the first time. First Time Attendees will be invited to a special reception in their honor, April 22, 2017
