Report your new club officers by May 20 and win!

What's happening right now in Optimist Clubs around the world?  New club officer elections!


While it may seem early to elect officers that won't officially take office until October 1, consider the benefits of having your current and future officers working together to accomplish the goals of your Optimist Club. 

  • Two heads are better than one. 
  • More enthusiasm leads to more involvement.
  • Short and long term goals can coexist. 
  • Continuity is planned.
  • Longevity is more assured. 
  • There are more team members to offer more skills.
  • More hands make light work. 
Optimist International encourages early elections so new officers can go to the International Convention for their specially designed training.  Optimist districts like early elections for the same reason.  Hopefully, Optimist Clubs understand the value of teamwork and continuity and seek to get more people involved so they can share their projects, dreams, and attitude with all.  

Report your new officers now and win!
Please hold your Optimist Club elections and report them before May 20 to Optimist International and your newly elected president and secretary/treasurer will be entered into a drawing for free conference registration to the PNW District Convention, a $115 value, on August 19-21, 2010.  This prize is not transferable and must be used by the person whose name is drawn.  

Instructions for making your report online: 

Please log in as Club President or S/T.
Choose REPORTS from the side menu.
From the REPORTS menu choose CLUB OFFICER-ELECT REPORT, complete all blanks and choose SUBMIT.
Your information will then be available to all district leaders. Thank you!
