It's back!

30 optimist international membership 30
One of the most popular membership recruitment tools used to attract young people to your Optimist Club has returned. In an email yesterday, Optimist International President J.C. St.-Onge announced that the 30 under 30 Program was now in effect. Beginning February 25 and running through September 30, 2013, every member that your club adds who is 30 years of age or less will be assessed only $30 for dues.

Here how the program works:
  • Optimist International strongly recommends that all Club and District dues and fees from February 25 - September 30 are also waived.
  • '30/30' Members $15 processing fee will be waived.
  • A one-time fee of $30 (CAD$30) is due along with the completed application.
  • Write '30/30' on the traditional hardcopy application or Club officers may click the designated check box on optimistleaders.org for online '30/30' roster additions.
  • These members will be listed separately on your club invoices from Optimist International - quarterly charge displayed as $0.00, until the quarter following their join date anniversary. Then they will be listed in your traditional numbers.
  • '30/30' Members count toward membership numbers.
  • For New Clubs, write '30/30' for any Charter Member that qualifies. The discount will not be effective until their first Quarterly dues billing. Charter fee is separate.
  • Questions? Please contact Member Services at membership@optimist.org or call (800) 500-8130.
Prospective young adult members will appreciate this opportunity to give back to their community without making a huge financial commitment. Now it's up to you to tell them about it. Happy recruiting!
