All Optimist Clubs are required to pay a $15 processing fee for new members added to their rosters.
The processing fee for adding transfer members is $5. The club secretary-treasurer needs to provide the member's prior club and member number. The member must be deleted from the previous club and added to the new club within a year.
Club secretary-treasurers, when submitting checks and club roster adjustment forms to Optimist International for new members, should indicate that the check is for processing fees. If a new member previously became a life member, indicate this and the name of the club(s) in which the life member has held memberships.
