COER in 20

pnw optimist coer
This is a friendly reminder to all Optimist Clubs. Club officer election reports (COER) are due May 20.

This annual deadline has been often overlooked; however, if you're Optimist Club is on the road to Honor Club, this year, for the first in many years, it is required again.

I can't speak to the reasoning behind adding the COER back into the mix; but I can speak to why the report is important.

Two things come to mind:

  1. The COER indicates good administrative practices and promises that leadership has been engaged for the coming year. 
  2. Reporting by May 20 allows Optimist International and the District to begin communicating with new officers in a timely manner so that they may be invited to conventions,  receive packages of information that will help them plan for their leadership year, and be included in District and International contact forms and directories. 
This post is to encourage your Optimist Club to hold its elections and report the results at www.optimistleaders.org on or before May 20. 

If your elections are held at a later time, please submit the report as soon as possible.
