2018 Sierra Nevada Region Soroptimist Development Retreat
Governor Lane welcomed us and spoke about the history of the Soroptimist Development Retreat, the new SNR Board of Directors performed a skit about Soroptimist through the decades and SIA President Dawn Marie Lemonds gave us a wonderful talk about Heroines in the Making. Our Keynote Speaker, Carolyn Carver, spoke about Communicating Across Generations on Saturday, and followed that up on Sunday with a presentation about Embracing Change. Learn more about Carolyn at her website. The weekend was fun, inspiring and very educational!
