As your incoming District Governor it is especially exciting to be part of Lions Clubs International 100th Anniversary celebration serving our communities locally and globally.
One of my primary goals during the coming year is to improve net growth by 2% over last year. One way to accomplish this is to Charter 1 to 2 new clubs and to strengthen weaker clubs. Both new clubs and weaker clubs will need some nurturing and mentoring. In this regard we are planning on conducting Certified Guiding Lion Training following the July 16th Organizational meeting.
Certified Guiding Lions provide assistance to clubs by:
- Helping the club determine their mission and purpose
- Developing/implementing a club officer training program
- Mentoring the club officers and members
- Providing tools and available resources for club management
I would appreciate if anyone interested in becom-ing a Certified Guiding Lion or seeking recertification please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can be sure to have enough hand-out materials.
Together, through growth, we can make our District even stronger and provide more service to people in our communities and the world.
Yours in Lionism,
Paulette Bailey, District Governor-Elect
