2 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 Internaonal. The good news is that as we approach the most volale me of our Lions year we have a posive 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. Posive Growth: 21 Members has been achieved. Well done but we can’t rest on our laurels as we approach the new year, a notorious me for dropping members. Clubs need to heed the “Stop The Drops” presentaons and iniaves provided to clubs. Look at your Club’s Health with the health surveys and analyse the results to determine where your members wish to go. It is a way of geng member feedback, reviewing and if required adjusng your goals. Member comfort and sasfacon with the Club are the Key to retenon. Look aer your members and keep them happy as they determine the direcon your Club should go. Another factor to assist in membership is obtaining Community Feedback by compleng a Community needs assessment. These assessments let clubs know what the community requires and if these needs are addressed and projects iniated 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 conducng 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 eecvely, improve membership levels and provide ideas for projects and eecve communicaon. 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 exisng Clubs as they do to New Clubs Please see the invite aached to this newsleer to let us know that you will be aending. 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 Lionisc. 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.

13 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 Naonal Convenon 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 acvies, recite the Lions Purposes and support each other in aempts 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 Mulple District and District Convenons oen 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 Commiee met early in 2016 at Wooli (47km south east of Graon, with a populaon of approximately 490), to ascertain what type of project would be suitable to commemorate the Lions Clubs’ Centenary 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 innovave Lions Club originated here. The ocial unveiling of the plaque is to coincide with the July 201N1 Cabinet meeng in 2017, hosted by Graon Lions Club and to be conducted at Wooli. Lion Warren White 21st October 2016. AUSTRALIAN LIONSONOZ CENTENARY PROJECT Lion Warren White of Australian Lionsonoz assists Lion Mike Ticehurst of the Tamworth Peel Valley Lions at one of their projects. Australian Lionsonoz Lions Lynne Mo, Yvie Kearns and Je Mo discuss the Lions Centenary project with Peter Birch of the Clarence Valley Council.
