Dear Optimist Leaders,
Good morning to each of you. Today, "WE" are responsible for the LEADERSHIP and DIRECTION of our districts, clubs and members! You have the skills, knowledge and ability to be a GREAT Optimist leader and together we will forge a great team and achieve wonderful results for our clubs and kids!
I believe very strongly that new clubs are the answer to achieving success and meeting the needs of kids and our communities! Building new clubs is the answer!
New clubs will bring us excitement, enthusiasm, excellence, energy and electricity to power our year to success.
So, in that spirit and to highlight and focus on this important element of our success...
For the first 25-member adult new Optimist club chartered in 2012-2013:
- The new club's president and his or her partner will receive a President's Cruise in November 2013 (includes airfare and cruise).
- The sponsor club's president and his or her partner will also receive a President's Cruise in November 2013 (includes airfare and cruise).
The sponsor club must finish 2012-13 as a Distinguished Club and the new club must finish the year as an Honor Club.
New clubs are our future. I urge you to make this your highest priority and top goal this year! The first team that charters a new 25-member adult club in 2012-13, then calls me, wins (charter paperwork must be filed within the same day). I am looking forward to the first call!
