Welcome Luncheon

You need to be a registered member of the SOPC in order to make any reservations for luncheons or to sign up for our social clubs. 

Every September, the SOPC Operation Committee hosts the first Luncheon to welcome all newcomers.

In addition to meeting the members of the Operation Committee, representatives of the SOPC Social Clubs and Groups will be presented and you will have an opportunity to sign up for the clubs you would like to join.

Everyone is welcome to attend, but reservations are required.  More details will be available from Luncheons Page.  More information will be available nearer to the date of this event.


Joining the Operation Committee

The SOPC is a dynamic organization, led by a group of enthusiastic volunteers, called the Operation Committee.

As all of us leave after a certain period, we need new volunteers to join the Committee regularly.

Joining the Committee is a great opportunity to meet and work with people from different countries, and meet new friends even faster. It is an opportunity for you to use the skills you already have or even to learn completely new skills. Normally, you will start as an assistant for a year and after that you will become the post holder with a new assistant next to you.

Check this out at SOPC/Opportunities. We hope to see you soon at one of the coffee mornings, luncheons, or social clubs!

With best wishes,

The Operation Committee
