From the Governor…

It’s New Year’s Day.  The beginning of all new things. Soon all Optimists everywhere will be creating new projects, starting new JOOI clubs, attending all club meetings, recruiting new members but most important, giving happiness and joy to hundreds of new kids.  Yes, that is our goal to make kids happy as well as successful.  We can insure that our club’s legacy will continued well into the next century.  In order to do this we must grow.  If only by one or two new members per club.  We must recruit young Optimist as we were when we began this journey of giving.  Remember?  All I can ask of each member is to continue to MAKE OPTIMISM A WAY OF LIFE.

Optimist International's Leadership Development Committee is happy to announce the debut of a new and updated Club President online training course and a brand new, first time ever, Lieutenant Governor online training course. These user-friendly courses feature interactive quizzes and pop-up resource materials. Each user will be guided, step-by-step, through the basic skills and actions needed to be a successful Club President or District Lieutenant Governor.

This online training is not a replacement for the officer training at our District Convention or at the Optimist International Convention. To access these courses go to optimisttraining.org, create a profile and click on the appropriate course and follow the easy to follow instructions.
