April is Leo Club Awareness Month! In addition to sponsoring a Leo club or planning projects that involve local Leos and youth, consider attending the Leo Lion Summit at this year’s Lions International Convention in Toronto on July 4, 2014. The summit helps ensure Leos have a voice within the Lions organization, and provides an opportunity to build the Leo-Lion relationship.
The program includes an open, town-hall format session that allows Lions and Leos to share their experiences and ask questions, as well as one-on-one interactions and workshops.
For further details on what to expect at the summit and how to register, visit the Leo Lion Summit page.
