COERs are due soon!

Happy May Day!

The first day of May is a good day to remind all Optimist Clubs that they should be planning for succession. Who will lead the team come October 1?

As has been the practice for decades, Optimist Clubs are expected to hold their club officer elections in the spring of each year and to report their new officers to Optimist International by May 20.  This practice is called completing the COER - the club officer election report. It may be done online by logging in as a club officer to www.optimistleaders.org. Once a COER is completed, the officers-elect begin receiving special information from the District and Optimist International.

If your club holds their elections at a different time, please complete the COER as soon as possible using the method described above.

All officers-elect should plan to attend the PNW Optimist District Convention. Specialized training for their positions will be held at that time, but most importantly, newly elected officers will have the opportunity to meet others who are starting their positions at the same time, share stories and goals, and form a bond in community service. Now that's what being an Optimist is all about.
