What does the extension commission do ?

The extension commission is available to the 55 Belgian clubs for all matters relating to recruitment and retention of members in clubs.  It also seeks the opportunity to create new clubs and supports the clubs in their creation. Furthermore, the commission is the contact point for anyone who has questions about membership, admission procedure, and so on.

What is the procedure for becoming a member ?

Each club is composed of members who engage enthusiastically in their Soroptimist committment.  It is important to build on diversity, to invite women from all professions and to train different age groups.

The clubs meet once a month. During these monthly meetings, various themes and actions related to the objectives of Soroptimist International are discussed, namely: improving the living conditions of women, girls and children by promoting their empowerment through education and leadership.

The clubs have a large degree of autonomy.  Consequently, each person wishing to join a club will be welcomed and invited to meet the other members of the club during one of the monthly sessions.

Her application and her CV will be reviewed by the club extension commission which will ensure that the candidate is welcomed and given all necessary information about Soroptimist International, its aims and procedures.

Upon admission, she will be accompanied by two mentors who will offer her support during her integration so that she quickly feels comfortable in the club.

We are constantly looking for dynamic and professional women.
