COVID-19 Region Update

Thank you all for your words of support and understanding during these uncertain times.  As we move forward, please know that your Camino Real Region Board is working hard to take you, our membership, and the women and girls we serve into consideration.  I understand the stress imposed by the COVID 19 pandemic.  I ask that you remain calm and follow all necessary precautions.  It is comforting to hear that many of your members are checking in with each other.  Please continue to connect with each other, the Region Board, community partners, and don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or concerns. 

Dream Programs and COVID 19

Please take the time to consider our Dream Program participants at this difficult time. Please visit for more helpful ways to assist women and girls during these challenging days.  If you have any great ideas or have had any success supporting women and girls during this time, please share with SIA at program [at] soroptimist [dot] org

SIA Suspends Soroptimist Gatherings

On Sunday night, March 15, our country’s CDC recommended organizers postpone or cancel events for the next eight weeks (estimated through May 11). Furthermore, on March 19, Governor Newsom ordered all individuals living in the State of California to stay home or at their place of residence, except as needed to maintain continuity of operation of the federal critical infrastructure sectors.  Follow this link for more information regarding the Order:

Spring Conference is Cancelled

On March 13, the Camino Real Region Board decided to CANCEL Spring Conference (as we know it).  Rescheduling within the fiscal year is simply not a viable option due to all the uncertainty.  The Board continues to discuss alternative options regarding our many awards, recognitions, and election of officers and details will be announced as they are worked out.  Additionally, the Board is assessing the impact of cancelling Spring Conference and we continue to work with the hotel to ensure we do not incur cancellation costs. 

CRR Elections

The Board is looking into electronic or mail in ballots.  We are consulting with SIA and considering any cost implications to determine the best course of action. 

LYD Awards

We will be announcing the Region LYD winners soon.  We are coordinating with SIA to receive SIA’s monetary award for our top two Region Winners.  Additionally, the Region will be issuing monetary awards to the top three region winners. 

Region Awards and Recognitions

We are extending the deadline for the following award submittals to March 30, 2020.  Thank you to those clubs who submitted their forms on time. 

    • Governor’s Award
    • Achieved Your Dreams Form
    • Distinguished Soroptimist
    • Celebration of Life Recognition

 The Region Board is coordinating a method to announce winners and distribute awards and recognition to clubs.  These will include years of service, victory award, and Celebrating Success. 

 Thank you all for your continued commitment to Soroptimist

 Yours in Service, Governor Ana Marie LeNoue
