Linda Jackson chosen Governor-elect for Optimist International - PNW District

The PNW District Convention came to a close on August 16 in Chilliwack, British Columbia. International President Designate Don Sievers and his wife Anita were the honored guests at this most important segue into a new year of Optimism.

With only six weeks left in the 2007-2008 administrative year, Governor Steve Andersen encouraged those in attendance to help the District complete a special membership goal. By adding only 52 members - or one member per club - Governor Steve explained the district will close the year with positive membership numbers.

Club presidents-elect and secretary/treasurer designates received an orientation into their positions with a big focus on the new recognition program, using Optimist websites and email, and motivating and leading volunteers. Governor-designate Peter Smith is looking forward to assuming the position of Governor on October 1.

Finally, a last order of convention business was completed when Linda Jackson of the Jerome Optimist Club was unanimously elected to the position of Governor-elect.

It was a great weekend and the Chilliwack and Mission Optimist Clubs were superb hosts. Watch for more posts on convention activities this week.
