Optimist International28 Roundtable Discussion You call a club president to discuss his/her goals and setting up the ACPC. He says, the board members dont have time to meet, he is happy with the club as it is, and he doesnt need any outside help. What is your response? How do you deal with volunteers such as club president who have negative attitudes? Role play a typical Annual Club Planning Conference by actually going through the ACPC form and asking questions.
