Don’t miss the last Leadership Development webinar of this Lions year: Conflict Resolution. The presentation disarms the idea of conflict by discussing common causes of conflict, the benefits of conflict and five conflict management strategies.
The webinar will review the pros and cons of each conflict management approach as well as when to use each one — competition, avoidance, compromise, accommodation or collaboration. Collaboration, the optimal choice, will be discussed in detail.
Don’t miss this webinar! It will give you the tools to help manage conflict at the club, district and all other Lions’ levels.

Today’s photo from the Submit a Photo collection features the Montclare Elmwood Park Lions Club in Illinois, USA. These Lions held a Reading Carnival, during which 105 children enjoyed story time, a puppet theater, face painting, temporary tattoos, crafts, balloon twisting, snacks and photos.
Through the Reading Action Program, Lions everywhere show their commitment to improving global literacy every day. In addition to hosting a local reading carnival, service activities that encourage reading include donating books to families in need, organizing a story time for parents and their children, and sponsoring a creative writing workshop.

Last week, I met members of the Lions Club Raasiku, a new charter club in Tallinn, Estonia. It’s one of my greatest pleasures to meet new Lions — to hear how they plan to take on new challenges, serve their communities and continue to grow their club. I also love learning why they decided to start a new club and become a Lion.
Perhaps you’ve met someone who has considered joining your club, but has declined because it just didn’t seem like the right fit. There are so many people who want a chance to help others, and starting a new Lions club gives them an opportunity to form a club that meets their own interests. For example, campus clubs are designed to involve students and young adults. Cyber clubs meet online. There are even clubs that bring people with similar hobbies or of the same ethnic background together. And all with the same mission: We Serve.
As you continue to spread the message of Lions in your community and recruit potential members, be sure to also encourage others to start a new club. When you sponsor a new club, you’re helping the community even more by expanding your reach.
April is Family and Friends Month, and there’s no better time than now to share your club with family and friends. Here are five great reasons to schedule a special event:
1. Spend time with family and friends
The only thing better than time with family and friends is time with family, friends and Lions. So host a special event that brings them all together to learn, serve and celebrate with you.
2. Put the spotlight on your club
It’s a great opportunity to tell family and friends about the difference your club is making in the community.
3. Get new members
New members strengthen your club and increase your ability to serve, so be sure to ask your family and friends to join you in making a difference.
4. Get new members
Some things are so important that you have to say it twice.
5. Everybody’s doing it
Thousands of clubs around the world have already hosted special events for Family and Friends Month, so make sure your club is part of it!
If you haven’t scheduled your Family and Friends Month event, do it today!
