 The name, Soroptimist, means "best for women," and that's what the organization strives to achieve. Soroptimists are women at their best, working to help other women to be their best.
   Soroptimist is an International organization for business and professional women who work to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world. Almost 95,000 Soroptimists in about 120 countries and territories contribute time and financial support to community–based and international projects that benefit women and girls.
 SI Lodi was chartered in 1945 and is in the Sierra Pacific Region which is located in Central California, USA, and is part of Soroptimist International of the Americas Federation, one of four federations of Soroptimist International—the largest classified service organization for executive and professional women in the world. Our 1,600 members are divided into 44 clubs in five districts, each district with its own director who serves on the region’s board of directors. Each individual Soroptimist club identifies the needs of its community, and works to establish or support specific projects to address these needs—strictly on a volunteer basis. In addition to our commitment to the community, we are concerned with effecting change at national and international levels to improve the quality of life for people throughout the world.
