What are your primary qualifications for this office?
Why should a Club vote for you?
We are now into our next century of service and about to celebrate 100 years of service in Canada in 2023/2024. We have accomplished so much around the world in these 100+ years. We have done so much correctly, and we need to continue to develop our programs and our practices to respect our past by embracing our future. Tracy sees our successes and sees our potential for the next century. Who better to step forward with a fresh innovative approach than someone who has grown up being embraced and embracing all that is wonderful about being an Optimist with a capital O? Her past speaks for itself. Let her future speak for our mission collectively as she leads us to bring out the best, in our best way, for our best future.
As an Optimist International Board member, or Optimist International President, what specific things will you work to achieve for the good of the organization?
It would be a complete honour to serve the organization that I have loved for most of my life, as the International President. But it takes a team, not an individual to bring sustainable success. Success is not a one-year goal. Given the chance to serve our membership I will be calling upon our membership to pull together as one International organization to embrace everything that is Optimist, and to embrace every Optimist. To step out and bring more service and more smiles to more children, members, and communities. I challenge you to join me to wear your membership with a capital O every day as an Optimist in all we say and do. I make that promise from me to you. ~ Tracy Huxley
