Have you "Herd" about Lions?
My focus this year will be promoting Lions and the Club Excellence Award.
Promote your club to your community, to other clubs and within your own club
Let’s increase our visibility in our communities by advertising ourselves, and by asking someone to help with an event even though they are not a Lion …..yet.
Strive to receive the Club Excellence Award
SERVICE – The club has conducted at least three service projects.
CONTRIBUTION — The club has made a contribution to LCIF.
MEMBERSHIP DEVELOPMENT – The club achieved a net growth in membership (including branch club members when
applicable) or sponsored a new club. The new members attended an orientation and were properly inducted into the Lions club.
COMMUNICATION – The club has publicized the club’s service activities to the public through local media and
effectively communicated activities to club members.
LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT – All officer positions were filled in accordance with the constitution and by-laws by qualified
Lions, the club was represented at zone meetings and a majority of the club officers participated in a leadership training program. The training program could include training offered at the zone, district, multiple district or International level. On-line courses from the Lions Learning Center, participation in a Club Excellence Process (CEP) Workshop or completion of the Certified Guiding Lion course count toward the award.
CLUB ACTIVITY – The club has hosted regular and meaningful club meetings and submitted the Monthly Membership
Report, the Service Activity Report, and the Club Officer Report (PU-101) in a timely manner.
CLUB IN GOOD STANDING – The club is not in status quo and all international dues billings and new member entrance fees
have been paid in full. No more than US$50 in any other expense due to LCI is outstanding beyond ninety (90) days.
These criteria are realistic and every club should be able to achieve them.
