Soroptimist International Moreton North Inc. (SIMNI) is a vibrant and dynamic service club for women of all ages who have an interest in sharing their skills and expertise to improve the lives and opportunities of others in our local and global communities.
SIMNI is currently the only Soroptimist International Club in the Region of South Queensland situated in the outer northern suburbs of Brisbane and covers the entire area of the Moreton Bay Region.
