WE NEED GREAT LEADERSHIP!
IF YOU ARE ON-FIRE WITH OPTIMISM, WE NEED YOU TO BE THE GOVERNOR-ELECT OF THE GREAT INDIANA NORTH DISTRICT AND ALL OF OUR 39 CLUBS FOR 2016-17!
Dear Lieutenant Governors, Presidents, and Past Presidents:
Indiana North District Optimist for Youth changed our by-laws last year to enable experienced, past or current presidents to become Governor of our District. Previous rules that permitted only current or past Lieutenant Governors to be eligible were changed as required by the International due to the increasing difficulty of finding replacement Governors in some states.
This change permits you or another member of your club with presidential experience to run for office. Please respond to this e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 765-642-5438 if interested and to learn more about the position.
If you prefer, you may also contact Past Governor Tom Stone (email@example.com, 765-620-3099), Current Governor Julie Robison (firstname.lastname@example.org, 765-574-264-3145), or Governor Elect Todd McMillin (Todd608@hotmail.com, 608-921-9978), all who are on the Candidate Qualifications Committee.
I am the past Governor of the Indiana North District. It was a great pleasure to serve as the Governor of our Great District. We need qualified candidates who are great leaders. I am the Chair of the Candidate Qualifications Committee this year. Optimist International provides training and Governor Elect Todd McMillin would mentor the 2017-18 candidate. It is a three year commitment (first year as governor-elect learning the job, second year doing it and mentoring the next governor, and third year giving out awards in the second quarter meeting as well as continuing to assist the governor).
Yours in On-Fire Optimism,
Past Governor Mel Jackson
