The October Membership Growth Month may be ending soon, but inviting new members is a year-round process. New members help ensure continued growth and success, and they increase your club’s ability to provide valuable service to your community.
It’s the responsibility of all Lions to invite new members, but your club membership chairperson can play an important role in your ongoing membership efforts. Your membership chairperson can help your club effectively recruit new members and increase the membership satisfaction of all members, whether new or seasoned.
Make sure your chairperson has a copy of the new Club Membership Chairperson Guide so your club can make every month a membership month!
The LCI Leadership Division has developed a webinar to help Lions take advantage of the wealth of resources on the LCI website.

November is Lions Diabetes Awareness Month! The International Diabetes Federation estimates that 371 million people worldwide live with diabetes, and that number is expected to grow to 552 million by 2030. In November, we encourage Lions everywhere to join the fight against diabetes — planning projects and events that help increase awareness of this deadly, debilitating disease and that educate community members on how to prevent the development of type 2 diabetes.
Project ideas for Diabetes Awareness Month include:

It always gives me great joy to see how Lions in Australia and around the world work hard to lead the fight against blindness — not just on World Sight Day, but every single day.
