Some people are motivated by deadlines. Of course Optimist Club members are motivated year-round, but in case you are a procrastinator, here is your reminder to:

Register for the Third Quarter PNW District Meeting - This is one of the favorite meetings of the year for it features fantastic students from our clubs for the district finals of the Optimist Oratorical Contest and the Communications Contest for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Taking place in Newport, Oregon, the early bird cut-off date is April 30. 

Register for the 2012 Optimist International Convention - The premier learning opportunity for club and district officer elects, the annual gathering which will take place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin is also where the organization adjusts bylaws and chooses international vice presidents-elect and the international president-elect. Optimist Club members come together to share fellowship and project ideas for serving their communities.
The early bird cut-off date is May 1

Hold club officer elections - It might seem early to elect those who will take office on October 1, but Optimist International, the PNW District and your club benefit from timely elections. It allows the incoming leadership to begin communicating in an effort to provide a seamless transition. Most importantly, the club president-elect becomes personally invested in the group that she or he soon begin to lead. Early elections help you collaborate and succeed. Officer elect reports should be filed online at Optimistleaders.org.
Please complete by May 20.
