Special Convention to be held at First Quarter Meeting 2020-21 for the PNW District Optimist Clubs

The first quarter meeting for the PNW District - Optimist International will be held on October 30-31,
2020 via Zoom. 

Governor Eddie Solorzano was looking forward to welcoming Optimist Club members in person; however, due to ongoing limitations from the COVID-19 restrictions, it was determined that an online meeting would be more inclusive for members in Canada who are not allowed across the border and others who do not yet feel comfortable about travel. 

In addition to welcoming new faces to their new roles in the new administrative year, the governor and his team have requested and been granted a special convention to cover administrative tasks that were not handled by the previous administration at the annual convention. 

Those tasks include completing financial obligations including changing signatories on the district bank accounts and adjusting the district policies to be in line with Optimist International suggested district policies, among other things. The suggested changes may be seen by clicking on this link. 

The Zoom meeting is free for all to participate, but registration is required. Click on this link to register. Club presidents or their designates are considered delegates and only delegates may cast their club's vote on convention business. 

There will be online training provided for Optimist Club presidents, secretary/treasurers, and others wishing to participate following the special convention. More information will be shared on Facebook as received.
