Monthly newsletter with Lion Club and District activities.

Membership is so important to our District as we are well below of what is the required numbers for a District according to
Lions Clubs Internaonal. The good news is that as we approach the most volale me of our Lions year we have a posive
growth.
We started the year with: 820 members
At present we have: 841 members
Clubs have recruited: 50 members for the year
We have dropped: 29 members.
Posive Growth: 21 Members has been achieved.
Well done but we cant rest on our laurels as we approach the new year, a notorious me for dropping members. Clubs
need to heed the Stop The Drops presentaons and iniaves provided to clubs. Look at your Clubs Health with the
health surveys and analyse the results to determine where your members wish to go. It is a way of geng member
feedback, reviewing and if required adjusng your goals. Member comfort and sasfacon with the Club are the Key to
retenon. Look aer your members and keep them happy as they determine the direcon your Club should go.
Another factor to assist in membership is obtaining Community Feedback by compleng a Community needs assessment.
These assessments let clubs know what the community requires and if these needs are addressed and projects iniated
you can invite members of the community to assist and provide them with an insight into your club and hopefully develop
a desire in them to join your club. Never forget to ask them to come and join you so that you can do more in the
community.
On the 19th of November we will be conducng Guiding Lions training. This training will allow you to learn strategies and
skills to not only assist other clubs and new clubs to develop but will help you to improve your own clubs to develop. It
provides an understanding on how clubs should run eecvely, improve membership levels and provide ideas for projects
and eecve communicaon.
The following day 20th November, a New Clubs Workshop will be conducted and
this will further enhance the skills from the previous day as well as ways, means and
who to communicate with or approach for increasing your membership. All the skills
required and who to target apply as much to exisng Clubs as they do to New Clubs
Please see the invite aached to this newsleer to let us know that you will be
aending. As we all know these workshops and training also put you in touch with
other Lions and Clubs to provide ideas on a whole range of things Lionisc.
Come along and enjoy the fun and friendship as well as providing you an opportunity
to do more for your Clubs, the District and Lions in General.

The year of Lions Centenary 2017 is coming up fast.
Members of Australian Lionsonoz, the very rst Australian
Online Lions Club (e-club), felt it was important to
acknowledge the Centenary and also their own humble
beginnings and commemorate being Chartered for 8 years.
Their Clubs Charter was handed over at the Melbourne
Naonal Convenon in May 2009.
This Lions Club acknowledges its beginnings and its current
work across Australia and chose to mark the Centenary with
a community project.
Chairman of the Australian Lionsonoz Centenary Project,
Lion Je Mo, said that Australian Lionsonoz is made up of
members who live all over Australia and on the third
Monday of each month, they come together online and
report on their acvies, recite the Lions Purposes and
support each other in aempts to add to the work of Lions
all over Australia. Once a year many of the members join
with the Lions Vanners group and travel to Mulple District
and District Convenons oen being very well represented.
Australian Lionsonoz has 42 members, and whilst members
are on their travels they are able to help Lions and visit
Lions Clubs wherever they happen to be.
The Lionsonoz Centenary Commiee met early in 2016 at
Wooli (47km south east of Graon, with a populaon of
approximately 490), to ascertain what type of project would
be suitable to commemorate the Lions ClubsCentenary
and to recognize that it was the Wooli Lions Club that
sponsored Australian Lionsonoz as a Branch Club in 2008.
A plaque which will probably be placed on the brand new
double barbecue, which the Clarence Valley Council is
installing in the Lions Park at Wooli will be a tasteful
reminder to the community of Wooli and its visitors that a
very innovave Lions Club originated here. The ocial
unveiling of the plaque is to coincide with the July 201N1
Cabinet meeng in 2017, hosted by Graon Lions Club and
to be conducted at Wooli.
