Our social media team here at Lions Clubs International headquarters often features clubs’ photos and stories on the official Lions Facebook page. If you’d like to see your club on our page, here are a few ways to get your club’s project featured.
If your club does not have a Facebook page, we encourage your club secretary to create one. Be sure to follow the LCI Facebook page. Post photos or videos on your page of your club in action at a recent service activity, and describe how you’re helping the community. As we go through our news feed each day, we’ll share interesting photos and projects from clubs’ pages to our own page. We will not accept stories or photos shared to us through Facebook private messaging or through comments.
Another way for you to submit your projects to us is through the Lions Blog. These posts are then shared on all of our social media channels.
We would love to share your story on the blog. The types of stories we are looking for are short, first-person stories that share personal experiences.
If you are interested in submitting to the blog, check out the Lions Blog Contributor Guidelines for more information.
Submit a Photo is a way for you to share pictures of projects and events held by your Lions club. We review these photos on a daily basis, and many of them end up being shared on our social media channels, including Facebook, the blog and Flickr.
To acquire permission to publish photos taken by your club, download the Photo/Video Authorization Form or Child Photo/Video Authorization Form. Are you interested in sharing a club project? You can Submit Your Story by filling out the Project Details form.
While we would love to help you get the word out about your project, with thousands of clubs worldwide, it would be nearly impossible to promote each club’s events at the local level. We suggest posting the events to your club’s page.
By posting your success stories, you can help motivate other Lions to tackle a project similar to yours in their own community. Keep up the good work, Lions.
Are you interested in the coordination and management of productive Lions meetings? Join your fellow Lions for the always popular Effective Club Meetings webinar. We will review the basics of good meeting management including:
This training will give you the practical tools and strategies to conduct efficient meetings and therefore increase club effectiveness and member satisfaction. And, the skills and tools discussed apply to a Lions meeting at any level–club, district, zone, or region. So, therefore, the Effective Meetings webinar is intended for any Lion who attends, or conducts, a Lions meeting—all of us!

The Environmental Photo Contest is a way for Lions around the world to share their pictures that capture the awe-inspiring magnificence that is found in nature. These photos can fall under any one of the following five categories:
Clubs are encouraged to hold their local Environmental Photo Contest and submit the “Best of Show” photo to their district office. Lions Districts need to send their winning photo to their Multiple Districts by January 15, 2015. Multiple Districts will then choose their winning photo, which they must submit to Lions Headquarters in Oakbrook, IL by March 1, 2015 along with a Multiple District Entry Form.
“Will my photo count?” In order for your photo to be eligible for the Environmental Photo Contest, your photo needs to follow these rules:
We ask that you only send one photo entry per Multiple District. We will not accept multiple entries.
Feel free to contact us with any questions.
Multi-Generation houses, located in communities around Germany, offer many different activities to bring children, adults and seniors together in support of one another. The Troisdorf Lions Club in Germany got involved with their local Multi-Generation house, which helps support the city’s large immigrant population. Learning a second language can be difficult, but with the help of the Troisdorf Lions, immigrant women are learning how to read and write German –helping them better integrate into the community.
Watch the clip above to see how the Troisdorf Lions Club is helping immigrants and children feel at home in the local culture. You can view the entire July Lions Quarterly on the Lions News Network.
