Why attend the District Convention

Our District Convention will be starting in a few weeks in Bozeman, Montana hosted by the Bozeman Optimist Clubs.

So here are three solid reasons to attend:
  1. Meet OI President Mark Shriver and his wife Patricia who are our guests. As Optimist members, we do not often get a chance to meet the president of Optimist International and engage in a conversation on the burning topic that is near and dear to our heart. This would be your chance.
  2. Attend Quality Workshops hosted by some of our District Committee Chairs. If you are club president elect or a secretary/treasurer designate, the best training outside of the OI Annual Convention is always provided at the District Annual Convention. If you are an incoming Lieutenant Governor, you get the opportunity to spend an entire day in workshops covering all the information that you’ll need to enjoy a successful year. There is usually a wide assortment of interesting workshops held on Friday for regular members to attend … all provided to enhance your ability to deliver quality, fun-filled projects and programs in your local communities.
  3. Meet the Incoming District Team who will be introduced by incoming Governor Tim Bell and sworn into office by OI President Mark.
The most important reason to attend the District Annual Convention is that it is usually a enjoyable mini vacation where you get a chance to enjoy the fellowship with the members from other clubs throughout the District. There is ample time to share experiences and pick the brains of the more experienced Optimist members who will be there.

I’ve been attending District meetings for years and I especially look forward to District Conventions as I always feel recharged as we head into the final six weeks of the current Optimist year and we start to plan for the coming year.

If you haven’t registered, I ask that you consider attending the District Convention this year.  To register and book accommodations, call Kat ... she can be reached at 406-587-4561 ext. 402. For more registration information ...

Gov Darryl, Gov-Elect Tim and I are looking forward to seeing you at this year's District convention.
