Governor’s Message

July 1, 2020

Greeting to all the Soroptimists of the North Atlantic Region,

As we begin a new biennium, I would like to take a moment to say “thank you” to each of you for putting your faith and trust in me to be the leader of our newly merged region for the 2020-2022 biennium.

It is through programs such as the SIA Dream Programs, that we as Soroptimists have been able to reach so many women and girls in our communities, our states, our region, our federation and around the world. Many of these women and girls would not have the potential to reach their dreams if it had not been for the help of Soroptimists like you and me.

During the course of the next two years I will use the theme:

“Become the Key to Someone’s Dreams”.

Each time you put a key in a lock to open a door; be it your car, your home, your office, your safe deposit box, or whatever; think about the key role YOU have played in being an integral part of someone’s dreams. When we reach out to help women and girls, we are a key to the future for them. All too often I have heard members of clubs say things like “But the small amount of money we are able to raise really doesn’t go very far in helping the women and girls in our communities”. ….. ; I want you to remember this: no matter how large or how small the amount may be,…. each turn of the key is a step in unlocking a promising future in someone’s life.

Due to the pandemic we are currently facing in our country and around the world, the future as we know it may be vastly different from what it has been in the past. The women and girls we serve through our programs leading to education and economic sustainability are needed now more than ever.

I ask you to join me in the 2020-2022 biennium to help unlock the dreams for a promising future of even more women and girls as we support them through our Soroptimist endeavors.

I look forward to working with each of you and I ask you to join me, as together, WE “Become the Key to Someone’s Dreams”.

Thank you,

Diane M Savidge
