Meetings are the process of coming together as an assembly for a common purpose during the formation of an Optimist Club. There are two types of meetings in New Club Building: Informational and Organizational. Informational Meetings are held to inform prospective Members about the mission, values and structure of Optimist Clubs and to identify service opportunities within the community.
Committees establish the Club Bylaws and set the slate of officers.
Official Organizational Meeting
The official organizational meeting is conducted by the Field Representatives, and the Official Charter is established. Field Representatives can download the Field Rep Handbook on Optimist Leaders.
