Upcoming District C1 Training Sessions

District C1 Leadership Team is constantly seeking ideas and feedback from the club members on specific topics/areas for training. Based on the feedback that we received three virtual training sessions are planned:

  • Sessions for Presidents/Vice Presidents and those who aspire to be
  • New member orientation

Details are given below.

Project Reporting

March 4, 2023 from 4-6 PM

To effectively tell our story, measure our impact and grow membership, it’s critical that all clubs report service. Every project we participate in, whether small or big, is to be reported as it can inspire other Lions around the globe.

Not comfortable with entering service hours into MyLion? Not sure what to do when keeping club records under MyLCI? We have the solution for you.

A Note from GST Coordinator

Hello fellow Lions, Greetings!

There are five months left in this Lions Year ending June 30, 2023 and I am excited to hear about all the

projects your clubs are doing, and I’d like to help you share them with other Lions.

  • When your club holds officer elections this year, consider electing a Service Chair Lion who will be able to access the input activities on MyLion and so lighten the clubs’ secretaries input duties on MyLion and also view what other club’s projects are. Please see the responsibilities of the Club Service Chairperson’s as detailed by Lions International Standard Club Constitution and Bylaws below.
  • In the very near future, the Lions Account will be transitioning to the Lions Portal with a few new functionalities. However, before this transition, Lions International is asking that all Lions members have their E-Mail addresses recorded as this provides security to prevent inappropriate access to Lions information being kept online.
  • I can provide training for MyLion input. Please contact me directly at 780-307-6582 if you or other Lions in your club requires assistance.


The responsibilities for this position shall be as follows:

  1. Serve as a key member of the club’s Global Action Team as the club Service Chairperson.
  2. Collaborate with the District Global Service Coordinator, Club LCIF Coordinator, district leaders, members of the club’s service committee and others to develop and communicate annual service goals and action plans. Goals and action plans should address current community needs and / or LCI’s global causes and can be comprised of advocacy and fundraising in addition to direct service to beneficiaries.
  3. Lead the service committee to implement the club’s service action plans in order to achieve the club’s service goals.
  4. Incorporate opportunities for local youth and Leos to engage in all aspects of service activities, including goal setting, implementation, project evaluation and reporting.
  5. Report service activities to Lions Clubs International.
  6. Serve as a club resource on current community needs by monitoring the service activities of other service clubs, developing community partnerships to expand service, and utilizing tools and resources offered by Lions Clubs International and Lions Clubs International Foundation.
  7. Increase member satisfaction by encouraging participation and engagement in service projects.
  8. Collaborate with the club membership chairperson and other club committees to promote membership opportunities to non-Lions during service projects.
  9. Attend the district governor’s advisory committee meeting of the zone in which this club is located when appropriate.
