Making plans for the summer? Include the Optimist International Convention

It's that time of year when we start looking towards our summer adventures. For many Optimist Club members, their adventures would not be complete without a trip to the Optimist International Convention. The convention returns to its most customary dates this year, July 4-6, 2013. It will be held in Cincinnati, Ohio with most activities taking place in the Duke Energy Convention Center.

Online registration is open now on the Optimist International website. By clicking on the previous link, you will be directed to the Optimist International Convention page where you may learn about the activities, agenda and housing for the event.

The convention provides opportunities for learning, fellowship, leadership and governance of the Optimist International organization. Club and district leaders and those elected to lead in the coming year receive special training designed especially for club presidents and secretary treasurers, and district chairpersons and lt. governors.

It's a great opportunity to meet new and old friends and share stories about the community service that your Optimist Club provides, but the most important aspect of the convention is sometimes the one least touted. This is your opportunity to have a say in what Optimist International does in the future. Individuals represent their Optimist Club in making important decisions about the priorities of the organization through the bylaws amendments and resolution process.

Optimist International hopes that you will join the organization this year in celebration of the 95th Annual Optimist International Convention. Fourteen hundred of your Optimist Club member friends hope you will too.

Stay up-to-date with convention announcements on Facebook.
