Through membership in a Lions club, people not only help those in need, but have opportunities to develop personal friendships and gain valuable leadership skills.
Membership is open to men and women of legal majority and good reputation in the community, and is by invitation only. Clubs meet at least twice a month and elect officers annually. The association is governed by an international board of directors. Each year, more than 20,000 Lions attend their international convention to discuss new ideas, share experiences and reaffirm friendship and fellowship.
A Lion joining a club for the first time pays an entrance fee to the Association. Annual dues to the International Association, the District and home club constitute the financial commitment other than meeting costs.
A Lion member may transfer to any club in the world, subject to the new club's acceptance. It is a requirement that a Lion complete the transfer within six months following the date of termination of membership in the former club.
Club meetings are held at least twice monthly. One meeting may be devoted to business and the planning of projects and the other to a dinner meeting often with a guest speaker, sometimes with spouses present.
The required attendance of members (either at club meetings or at activities), participation of spouses, type of program, formation of committees, etc., are all decisions finally taken by the local club based on the broad recommendations of the Association.
Lions Clubs elect their officers annually and work through club committees.
All monies for a Lions Club activity are raised by the efforts of the members through whatever legal fund-raising projects they may devise.
