Here is how to receive a free registration to the 100th Optimist International Convention

Optimist International and President Jim Kondrasuk are encouraging Optimist Clubs to become Honor Clubs. In addition to  declaring the 2016-2017 administrative year to be "The Year of the Honor Club," they are adding an extra incentive in the fourth quarter of the year.

The incentive will reward every Optimist Club a free registration to the 100th Optimist International Convention in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

To earn this reward, an Optimist Club must be an Honor Club or better and add 5 new members between July 1, 2017 and September 30, 2017.

Doing so will make your club stronger!

It's rather obvious that more members will allow your club extra hands to do more projects in your community. Being an Honor Club proves that your club is practicing excellent administrative practices as well.

Here are the requirements for Honor Club:
  • Complete three or more service projects each year 
  • Complete the President’s Pride Report and Club Officer-Elect Form 
  • Recognize a Club member or local community individual 
  • Grow Club by Net of +3 in membership
  • Appoint a Club Foundation Representative and make a non-restricted contribution to the OIF or CCOF 
  • Conduct a Membership Recruitment/Drive such as a NOW Program 
  • Club President or Club President-Elect (or two Designees) attend District Convention (or two other District meetings/conferences) 
  • Be current on District and OI Dues and Fees
Can your Optimist Club be an Honor Club. Of course it can! And we can't wait to see your representative in Ottawa.
