Effective May 15th, 2013, AMS&NW launched three education websites that offer opportunities for members to complete some training at home.
Welcome to online training for Optimist members
In the coming year, our hope to shift some of the standard workshops to our new "Optimist Academy" in the form of quick tutorials or full-blown online seminars & workshops hosted in our new internet school.
We are also providing a weath of information on how to build club websites, create facebook and Google+ pages, and use other internet-based web services to get your clubs online where many of our future volunteer members hang out.
Our plan is to free up conference workshop time so that we can deliver new, innovative and challenging workshops on new topics and round-table focus group discussions. Our goal is to deliver quality training to as many members as possible.
