P.G.I. is your passport to personal development, increased member involvement and club growth. Participation in P.G.I. offers members the opportunity for personal growth while working at their own pace. It will also provide fresh ideas for club meetings.

 

How it works

When a member enrolls in the PGI Program they receive a Passport and enters his/her name, club name and club number on the front. As a member completes a step the club director of personal growth, club president or secretary-treasurer initials beside the step completed on the passport, initiates a Club PGI Tracking Form and enters the date each level is completed on the form.

When an entire level is completed, the club director of personal growth, club president or secretary-treasurer signs and dates the bottom of the page of the level completed on the passport.

The club then forwards a copy of the PGI Recognition Form to the District Director of Personal Growth for processing.The District Director of Personal Growth submits the name, club number, member number and date completed to the Leadership Development Department at Optimist International.  Optimist International will forward to the District Director of Personal Growth the appropriate pin backings and certificate for level VII to be presented to the member(s) at the next district conference/convention.
