It's a popular saying, "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas," but I sure hope that it isn't always true. As Optimist Clubs gather this year for the 96th annual Optimist International Convention, members will share stories, gather ideas and gain momentum to do even more to serve their communities when they return home. That's why it's important that what happens in Vegas be spread far and wide.
There is only 6 days left to register at the early-bird discount rate. Click here for all news and information about registration and lodging. The Optimist International Convention will be held at Caesar's Palace, July 10-12, 2014.
In addition to helping make important decisions about the governance of the organization, registrants will have the opportunity to attend the President's Ball, Old-Timer's Breakfast and the host-area Hospitality Luncheon, among many other traditional activities.
Special to this convention are the keynote presentation with Jack Canfield, popular author of the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series and Austin Gatus, an inspirational musician with a message of hope for cancer patients. There will be impressionists, jugglers, magicians and more to entertain the Optimists gathered in the original convention town.
