DISTRICT CONVENTION 2014 is officially set for August 9 -10 at one of Jamaica's premier all-inclusive locations, The Sunset Jamaica Grande Resort and Spa in Ocho Rios, St Ann. The word from Treasa James, the affable and efficient District Secretary-Treasurer, is that convention promises to be an exciting experience with something for every Optimist. After all, she reminds us, we've got it!
According to the official first call from the DST, Conference Chair Genevieve Gomes has managed to successfully negotiate a package that gives us wonderfully attractive options for accommodation. Couple that with the awesome meeting and training experience being planned by Governor Nutilia Simon and GE Barbara Arrindell and what a tremendously promising weekend of Optimism is in the making. All we have to do is be there, everyone!
HERE ARE SOME HIGHLIGHTS FOR YOUR PLANNING:
Triple the Fellowship... Book a triple room and pay only 100USD per person for the Saturday night. Check in Saturday morning and you are covered for lunch, dinner and entertainment on Saturday plus breakfast and lunch on Sunday... and don't forget access to the activities of this gorgeous property.
Ride The Bus... PG Cecille Hale is coordinating transportation from Kingston to Ocho Rios so you may want to book your seat early and enjoy a relaxing ride across the exquisitely captivating Jamaican landscape. Email PG Cecille at email@example.com
Register Early and Save... Register for convention by July 20 and pay the early bird registration of only 52USD. The Frigate bird registration is 60USD by August 3; and after that, it will be 68USD. Note that the registration fee includes the usually dynamic Installation Reception.
Why should we be at District Convention? Simple answer: The children need well trained volunteers who know how to make a real difference and so there will be training, training and more training. But, there will also be the critical and engaging deliberations and decisions at the general sessions and meetings about the future of the District. Of course, wherever Caribbean Optimists are gathered there is bound to be fete, fete and more feting!
