How do I become a
Since membership is by invitation only, it
necessitates getting to know a Lion or a Lions Club. Any Lions Club will be
happy to have you attend a meeting and begin what we hope will be a long
association with Lions. You can use our E-List link to
contact us for further information regarding this Club. After a few
meetings, all the questions you may have regarding membership should be answered
to your satisfaction. You will then be asked to submit an application to the
club of your choice and following acceptance by its Board Of Directors be
inducted into Lionism.
Each new Lion member has a Sponsor whose
duties include the support of a new Lion and to help show by example how to be a
good and active Lion.
What time will I be required to give as a
Lion ... ?
We serve in any way we can, and to the
best of our ability, to what we see to be the needs of the community in which we
live, in whatever form it appears necessary, and to whatever extent our
resources of time and money permit.
There is no set rule as to how much time
should be given. It is expected that a member will attend as many regularly
scheduled meetings as possible. It certainly is our goal to have every member
achieve 100% attendance for these meetings, but since that may be impossible,
make-ups can be attained working on our projects, attending training sessions or
even by visitations to fellow Lions Clubs. At no time will you have to give
more time than you can afford.
Why do Lions Clubs have annual Dues ?
Lions Club dues are among the lowest for
service organizations and costs vary from Lions Club to Lions Club.
However, 100% of money collected from the
public must be returned to the public.
It is therefore incumbent on individual
Clubs to assume the administrative burden in support of it's activities. This
is done through a fee added by the Club to the annual dues established by Lions
Clubs International. Clubs normally collect fees twice annually.
