Often, members of dues-supported organizations wonder what they “get” for their dues. Soroptimist uses annual dues to ensure our members have a fun and meaningful club experience while accomplishing our collective mission—today and into the future. Members pay $74 for SIA dues. The return on that investment—that is the dollar amount it would cost each member for all the service and benefits SIA provides—would be approximately $165, or a 235.7% return. Surveys tell us members value the following benefits from their membership:
Mission: Members experience joy and a sense of accomplishment by working with other like-minded women on global programs that socially and economically empower women and girls.
Connection: Members grow professionally and personally through their friendships with other club members, connections with women from different cultures and countries, and opportunities for leadership development.
Assistance: Members receive assistance and resources from SIA headquarters enabling them to enjoy a meaningful club experience knowing they are part of a secure organization invested in the future.
