First Place, SI Eastwood City
2008 Soroptimist Celebrating Success
Category: Member Recruiting


SI Eastwood City received the First Place Award from SIA President Machiko Yamada for its entry, “The Story of SI Albay Magayon”, at the 40th Biennial Convention held at the Taipei International Convention Center on July 18, 2008. SIEC President Andrea E. Lim accepted the award on behalf of the Club.

The story recounts the journey of SIEC in chartering what is now known as SI Albay Magayon (literally, Albay Beautiful) – a vibrant new “baby” club.

Adhering closely to the “Ten Steps to Chartering”, SIEC described how they found a wealth of experienced women in Albay while they were shoulder-to-shoulder in deep mud building houses for survivors of Typhoon Reming.

This is SIEC’s fifth First Place Award in Soroptimist Celebrating Success since its chartering on March 9, 2002.
