SISA celebrates its 50th anniversary

2015 has seen the 50th anniversary of the formation of the South African body of Soroptimist International.  The occasion was celebrated during SISA’s annual conference and 50th AGM, held in Port Elizabeth in September 2015.  The SI club of Port Elizabeth is South Africa’s oldest club (chartered 56 years ago) and was the host of this year’s conference.  SISA President Lisette Genseberger presented long service certificates to a number of South African Soroptimists, some of whom have been members for 30 years and longer!
