Michigan Growth Tour 2018 - 06/02/2018

You’re invited to an Interactive Discussion with Optimist International Director of Strategic Growth JIM BOYD

Join us as we discuss new ideas intended to spur larger membership in our clubs, and perhaps even creating new clubs in our area. We all want our clubs to serve more youth in our communities as we move to the future. We’ll provide some new concepts that clubs are using throughout the continent and listen to your thoughts that might benefit clubs throughout Michigan and our Optimist Communities. Jim is a past radio personality and has a way to not only make this event informative but Entertaining as well! - CALENDAR
