The governor's VIP Teresa Wallace sent a report of the happenings at the second regional meeting for PNW Optimist Clubs in Everett, Washington. As your social media strategist, I was delighted to see that Convention Chair Becky Holmes successfully attended from her home in Roseburg, Oregon via Skype. Additionally, Teresa wrote:
We had members present from Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia.
Many reports from Chairmen were made by a designated representative. One Chairwoman, Becky Holms, wasn't able to attend, but we set up a Skype video chat that went quite well. (a now proven way to represent). Becky told us that activities are being planned for young people at 4th Qtr Convention at Seven Feathers (teens and pre-teens).
Handouts were given for our revamped Achievements and Awards program. Ben Deremer did a great job with it. Get your score sheets for 1st Qtr in ASAP. Other hand outs were given for International Convention, and one for Optimist web presence.
The web training went well despite the poor internet connection. We were able to discuss until no more questions were forthcoming.
A video presentation was made on Jr. Golf.
Membership goals were stated. Some clubs have had success attracting younger members. Sounds like three or four new clubs are in the works. We DO have a growth plan.
Everyone had an opportunity to introduce themselves and tell how they became an Optimist and why they stayed. We learned a little more about each other and what our motivators are.
Each club present was able to share a favorite program. We learned about several clubs not present through their Lt. Governor.
Looking forward to seeing all of you attending Meridian, Idaho!
That's your call Idaho! Register now to attend on March 8 at Wahooz and PINZ.
