The document was fully revised in between the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 administrative years. The revisions recommended at this time are to correct punctuation and grammar, among other things, and to make the document gender-neutral. Additionally, Governor Dick Disney asks for the following changes:
- Reduce the District dues by $2.00 to $16.00 US
- Establish fair and equal guidelines for funding the Oratorical and CCDHH Contests.
- Following Optimist International financial policies, require all monies collected or reimbursed by the District to be converted to the US dollar exchange rate as published at www.optimistleaders.org.
- Establish a publication and notification deadline for future revisions to the District Policies.
In order to vote at the District Convention, a delegate must be a Club President or the Club President's appointee. This designation must be provided in writing, by email or in person, to the District Secretary-Treasurer in order to receive voting credentials.
If you have any questions or comments about the proposed revisions, please email Governor Dick.
We hope to have full representation from the PNW Optimist Clubs in order to make the changes necessary to keep the District and our clubs vital, strong and growing.
