Zonta Club of Metropolitan Pasig focuses on engaging members

To encourage the members of the Zonta Club of Metropolitan Pasig, District 17, to engage more with Zonta's mission, leaders of the club have been focused on team building.

As part of this focus, club members have visited various projects in the area. Members say that visiting these projects deepens their sisterhood and provides a better understanding of what they can do in their community to help better the livelihood of local women.

In their focus on recruiting and retaining members, as well as keep them engaged, Zontians Armita Rufino and Susan Lim have found that it is important to involve active members in all service and advocacy projects. It is also important that projects adhere to the biennial goals as well as fit into Zonta's "why."
