Being on the Board also gives you opportunities to be on other committees or panels as needed. This Board position requires you attend a Board conference call every 6 weeks or so. You must have at minimum basic computer knowledge. The Board requires one face-to-face visit each year. Our meeting this year will be in Myrtle Beach, SC in October. Your registration fee will be paid for; however, you are required to pay for transportation and hotel. In 2019, our Worldwide Convention will be in San Antonio, TX.

Once again, many of our chapters have received a second gift from our founder, Woody Baldwin. The executor of his will completed the distribution of Woody's wishes: donations to the chapters he loved so much. These funds have gone to all of the current chapters that existed in good standing at the time of Woody's passing in April of 2016. How can the chapters acknowledge this wonderful gift? By promoting Worldwide activities in their monthly newsletters in order to form stronger bonds with Prime Timers Worldwide.
