Mrs. Nancy Wickham is planning the airline reservations and the Convention hotel reservations for the CALSO JOI Group and CALSO District Chaperones, all of whom will be traveling as a group. In order to obtain the most favorable airline fares for the roundtrip, the ground transportation, and the block of hotel rooms for the group and chaperones, the names and contact information should be provided to Mrs. Nancy Wickham during February. Mrs. Wickham will follow up personally with the families of interested CALSO Junior Optimist International Club Members to obtain commitments from the families to pay a share of their JOI Convention attendees’ expenses.
The CALSO Optimist District Board of Directors, at their February 8, 2020 Quarterly District Meeting approved“reimbursement of up to $400 for each CALSO JOI Club Member and Chaperone Traveling together as a Group to the Junior Optimist International Convention in June 2020”. The anticipated total cost per member traveling as part of the group is approximately $1100. Family commitments are expected to be $400, or more per traveler. The remaining funding, roughly $300, is expected to be obtained through fundraising activities, individual contributions, Optimist Club contributions, and resources available to the travelers (e.g., savings, earnings, gifts, presents, awards, scholarships, etc.). Mrs. Wickham can help you identify the basic items included in the $1100 estimated cost per Group traveler.
