I have been a member of Soroptimist International of Chico since February 1989 and have truly loved being a part of the organization and working with so many dynamic & energetic women. It’s been very satisfying to be able to help women and children locally and globally.

Since joining, I’ve held all offices, from SI/Chico President in 1995-1996, to being both Treasurer-Elect and Treasurer for several years. I had originally said I never wanted to hold those offices, since I work as Office Manager for our accounting corporation, Lotspeich & Company, with my husband. It seemed a bit too much like work to be SI/Chico Treasurer. But, I’ve actually liked it and found it a great way to learn about so many different aspects about Soroptimist on the local, regional and even international level.
