Lion Membership

Through membership in a Lions club, people not only help those in need, but have opportunities to develop personal friendships and gain valuable leadership skills.

Membership is open to men and women of legal majority and good reputation in the community, and is by invitation only. Clubs meet at least twice a month (with the exception of the months of July and August for most clubs) and elect officers annually. The association is governed by an international board of directors. Each year, approximately 20,000 Lions attend the international convention to discuss new ideas, share experiences and reaffirm friendship and fellowship.

Those interested in membership should contact their local Lions club. To locate a Lions club in District A-1, go to the District A-1 list of clubs in the District Directory or the Lions International web site and click on the link "Find a club near you".
