    How to Conquer the Pandemic with Optimism Optiforum Field Guide

    In the latest Optiforum, Mark Weinsoff invited staff and members to talk about "How to Conquer the Pandemic with Optimism." To recap the Optiforum, the Optimist International Communications, Marketing, and Technology Committee created the Field Guide to flourish during the pandemic. The field guide includes resources on financial assistance, the best way to meet with members virtually, and what clubs are doing to make a difference in their community. At the end of the webinar, the committee introduced the "Certified Optimistic Optimist Club" for clubs to receive recognition for their optimism during the pandemic. You can access the pledge and its requirements in the Field Guide.
