At this year’s International Convention in Toronto, we asked Lions to answer a simple question: What do you enjoy about being a Lion? The response was huge, as Lions happily shared their feelings of being a Lion — whether they enjoyed the friendships formed through their club, or they loved volunteering their time to help others in need.
Watch the video above to hear from fellow Lions, and tell us in the comments below what YOU enjoy about being a Lion!
You can also view more convention videobooth videos on the #LCICon YouTube channel.

At this year’s convention in Toronto, Lions Clubs International worked with ViridiSTOR LLC to deliver the entire convention digitally on a USB. Over 16,000 delegates representing the 1.36 million members from over 200 countries worldwide attended the annual convention. When you think of all the paper needed to provide each attendee with convention materials, it’s clear that the USB was truly an environmentally-friendly approach to this year’s convention.
“It was only a matter of time before we would make the Lions’ annual convention not only digital, but one of the largest quantifiably sustainable events in the world,” said Terry Mullin, CEO of ViridiSTOR.
“Lions Clubs International has many initiatives around the world involving sustainability and improving the environment,” stated International President Joe Preston. “Considering the tremendous amount of information that the USB potentially holds, by going paperless we avoid the printing, shipping and waste of paper. That, in turn, is better for the environment. It’s a win, win situation.”
The USB included everything from key information on the 11 divisions at LCI, seminar materials, handouts, training and initiative information and a variety of videos. Attendees were able to carry everything they needed for convention in their pocket, without worrying about a handful of papers!
Has your club considered going paperless? Here are a few easy ways to get started:
Each new Lion brings fresh ideas, passion and a hands-on attitude to clubs — helping to improve service and make a greater impact in the community. There are 1.35 million Lions worldwide. Imagine the difference we could make around the world if every Lion asked one person to join his or her club!
All it takes is just one person. Download our Just Ask! Member Recruiting Guide to help you get started, or visit our Invite Members page for tips on who to invite and how to welcome new members into your club.
