  1. I am with Soroptimist International of Alhambra, San Gabriel and San Marino. We’re facing a crisis in our community like many others and mentoring to 7th/8th grade girls that are high risk with challenges. I have tried to register for your 8/27/16 conference, with no success! Please call me at 626.705.1333, as I would truly appreciate attending to enhance and collaborate information within our organization of 90,000 women globally.
