Each year, the PNW District - Optimist International recognizes an outstanding Optimist Club member for service given at the District level. On behalf of the nominating committee, Annette Smith released the following note, requesting your nominations for individuals to be considered for this prestigious award.
Nominations Open for the Roy Proctor Lifetime Achievement Award
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 honour a living individual, or individuals, rather than to be a memorial award.
Award recipients must meet all three of the following criteria:
1. Having given at least 10 years of service to the District, which does NOT need to include having served as a district officer; AND
2. Having built a new club or having consistently brought in new members over his Optimist career or having served as District Foundation Representative; AND
3. Having provided inspiration and motivation to fellow Optimists.
A selection committee comprised of previous Roy Proctor Award winners meets annually at the Third Quarter District Meeting to choose the recipient(s), whose award(s) will be presented at the District Convention. The selection committee chooses from nominees submitted by Pacific Northwest District Optimists.
Nominations for the Roy Proctor Award are now open. All nominations must be received by May 1, 2015. Send written nominations describing how the nominee meets the foregoing criteria to Annette Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org) on or before May 1.
