Does your Club have a Newsletter or Bulletin?
Either electronic or mailed, it is a valuable tool to keep club members informed about club and district activities.
Club Newsletter Contest
Please send a copy of your newsletter to the Governor Mark Wilson and Nic Quintana who is the District newsletter chair and contest person. Also to your Lt. Governor, and Paul Grant (the District Bulletin editor).
Optional: Rick France (District Secretary/Treasurer), and other club presidents in your zone.
Nic prefers to receive a copy by US Mail as some of them do not open properly in emails. Consider emailing it to him, then following up with a “snail mail” copy.
Wondering where to get started? Get your Optimist International Club Newsletter Guide here.
Bonus - your club gets A&A points for a newsletter too!
Club Secretaries -
You know your Club is doing a great job helping kids and the community. Please use the quarterly A & A Report to tell the story of your Club's service work, and to share your news with the whole District Team.
