Be an Honor Club

Membership maintenance remains fairly level in the PNW District. In raw numbers, that means Optimist Clubs in this district have added 150 new members and deleted only 195 members. That also means that almost every club has the ability to become an Honor Club this year.

I'm not sure that I remember a time before when this was possible. In order to be recognized by Optimist International for exceptional service to your community with excellent administrative practices, your club must do the following by September 30:
honor club optimist international

Honor Club
(Club will receive a banner patch, year bar with Club President’s name and year; thereafter a year bar with Club President’s name)
  • Complete at least three service projects a year (submit President's Pride Report)
  • Recognize a Club member or local community individual
  • Grow Club by net plus 1
  • Be current on District and OI dues
Distinguished Club
(Club will receive a watch for club President and secretary and/or treasurer, a banner patch with the Club President’s name; thereafter a year bar with club President’s name and watch)
  • Meet Honor Club Criteria plus:
  • Net of 15 OR Charter a New Club
When an Optimist Club earns the Honor Club recognition, it tells its members and its community that it is doing everything it can do be a vital part of the community today and far into the future. 

Help your Optimist Club achieve this distinction by asking someone to join your Optimist Club today.
