Competition questions

  1. Happy Lions clubs enjoy being together. They work together, play together, and enjoy leisure times together. What does your club enjoy doing together?

  2. Happy Lions clubs are flexible and share responsibilities. How is your club flexible when it comes to sharing the load?

  3. Happy Lions clubs share a sense of humour and laugh together in troublesome moments. How has having a sense of humour helped to smooth a potential issue? Could your club be the happiest Lions Club?

  4. Happy Lions clubs admit to problems and solve them. Tell us about a problem within your club that has been solved by working together.

  5. Happy Lions clubs are inclusive and accepting of others. How is your club welcoming and accepting of difference? (For example does your club have people that are of a different nationality, gender, age, or abilities?)

Don’t forget the video!! 30 to 60 seconds of your club enjoying a laugh, a bbq, a meeting, dinner, a picnic, a project or a joke,….the list goes on…

Winning clubs will be formally announced at the Convention and the winning video will be screened to delegates. In the event a club is not available to receive the award at the Convention the club’s District Governor will accept the award on the club’s behalf.   


Membership Matters

MARCH TO MAY NATIONAL MEMBERSHIP CAMPAIGN 2016

How are you and your club going with our major Membership Growth campaign for this year? One month has already passed, and I would hope that all clubs are now well into their own “recruiting and club awareness activities” as part of the campaign.

If you or your club is struggling for ideas, perhaps a couple of these tips and “best practice” from other successful club promotions may help:-

One of our clubs – Rollingstone And District – recently held a “Bring A Friend” night. Members were encouraged to identify neighbours/friends/new arrivals in their local small community and to pass those details to the Club’s President & Membership committee. Experienced Lions then met with the prospective new Lions to explain what Lions do, and from there they were invited to the Club’s Dinner Meeting where a short, sharp overview of Lions was presented. The result – 10 (TEN) new Lions were inducted on the night across a range of ages (24, 30, 39, 6 in the 40 – 60 group including a family couple, and one very active octogenarian) and thus changed the dynamics within the club. At the same time they have also doubled the membership of their small Leo’s club with 3 new members.

If you have any questions in regard to the above activity and would like to run it in your Club, please do not hesitate to call Rollingstone President John Holliday (Mob 0414 808483).

And if you have any good news stories or best practice that you would like to share, please contact me. I am only a “click” of the keyboard or a phone call away!

Club Excellence Process

Achieve Club Excellence

The Club Excellence Process (CEP) is a fun, interactive process that brings members together to look at what your club is today and what it will be tomorrow. It gives you the tools to strengthen your service, improve club effectiveness and enhance your membership experience. CEP is the perfect resource for any club that wants to achieve excellence!

To learn more, read the CEP Overview.

We’ve made it even easier for your club to participate by offering two versions of CEP to choose from, CEP Pro and CEP Lite:

CEP Pro

  • Have a trained Lion facilitator come in and guide members through the workshop.

CEP Lite

  • Have a member of your club lead the workshop.
