Teachers Can Join For $30 for First Year

Last year’s “Recruit a Teacher” incentive was so well-received that Optimist International has renewed it for the entire 2019-2020 Optimist year!
From October 1st, 2019 until September 30th, 2020, Optimist clubs are encouraged to recruit teachers from their local schools. Optimist International is waiving the $15.00 membership fee and offering a year’s dues for only $30!

Why Teachers?

Optimist Members of all professions are important to Clubs, so why the emphasis on teachers?  A strong connection with local schools is extremely beneficial for your Optimist Club. More teachers on your roster strengthens this connection. They can open doors for attracting more students to our youth projects – including Oratorical, Essay, Sports and other programs. Teachers are able to provide first hand insight into the needs of the children of your community. They provide the foundation for new Junior Optimist Clubs. Your Optimist Club will serve more children!

Who Qualifies?
• Teachers
• Administrators
• College professors
• Coaches employed by the school
• Aides
• School library staff
• Counselors
• May be active or retired
• If “teacher” is on their resume, they qualify.

Please contact the Membership Department with any questions: (800) 500-8130 ext. 226 or e-mail danny.schuette@optimist.org.

This promotion is for new Optimist Members only. It may not be used in conjunction with any other membership promotions, including “Friend of Optimist.” Clubs will be billed $30.00 at the time the teacher is added to their roster and then will not be billed dues for that Member for a calendar year.
