The Roy Proctor Lifetime Achievement Award is presented to an Optimist or Optimists for lifetime service to the Pacific Northwest District. This award recognizes individuals who have given outstanding and ongoing service to the District. It is not intended for the hundreds of outstanding Optimists who serve their clubs and communities but do not participate at the district level. The award is intended to honor a living individual, or individuals, rather than to be a memorial award.
Award recipients must meet all three of the following criteria:
- Having given at least 10 years of service to the District, which does NOT need to include having served as a district officer; AND
- Having built a new club or having consistently brought in new members over his Optimist career or having served as District Foundation Representative; AND
- Having provided inspiration and motivation to fellow Optimists.
Nominations for the Roy Proctor Award are now open. All nominations must be received by May 1, 2012. Send written nominations describing how the nominee meets the foregoing criteria to Annette Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org on or before May 1.
