The New Club Building Chair is responsible for promoting the building of new clubs. This Chair ensures that every club is aware of the criteria for introducing a new community to Optimism, and encourages people to consider building new clubs where appropriate. If someone is interested in building a new club, the New Club Building Chair helps arrange help from a Certified New Club Builder from Optimist International, who is ready to "close the deal" after the preliminary work has been completed. The New Club Building Chair is also responsible for promoting the Builder of Excellence award, which is available after a new club has been organized.
Forms are available on the Optimist Web site to notify Optimist International of the intention to build in a particular area, including a special request form to build a new club with as few as fifteen members in a designated target area.
