Palmer’s Blog: Follow Me on Social Media

Author: Leave A Comment

One of the the things I love about the power of social media is how it allows me to connect with Lions worldwide every day! Whether I’m at a board meeting in Australia or visiting the site of next year’s convention in Toronto, I’m always chatting with Lions from across the globe to tell them what I’m up to and encourage them to follow their dreams.

Follow me on Facebook and Twitter to join the conversation, and to see photos of my travels visiting Lions everywhere.

And if you haven’t already, be sure to create a Facebook and Twitter page for your Lions club. Social media is a wonderful way to keep your members updated and spread the Lions message across the community.

Extend Your Membership Month!

Author: Leave A Comment

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!

Diabetes Awareness in November

Author: Leave A Comment

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:

  • Organize a Strides event, such as walking, running, cycling or dancing, that promotes healthy exercise.
  • Partner with a local healthcare provider to organize diabetes and vision screenings to the public.
  • Sponsor a child in need to attend a diabetes camp.
  • Participate in World Diabetes Day events on November 14.
  • Organize a healthy cooking demonstration.

What diabetes awareness activities is your Lions club planning for next month?
