We are entering into DG Larry Masters fourth month of Reach for the Moon and International President Bob Corlew New Mountain to Climb as our leaders for 2016 – 2017. We do not know why they chose these topics as their goals or objectives.
We as lions should ask ourselves how we can climb mountains in our community? What goals and objectives should we reach for in our clubs? As I read the newsletters, many of you are already climbing and reaching out to your communities. I commend you for your ideas, accomplishments and the changes you are making in others’ lives.
Lion Blanche and I attended our first USA/Canada Leadership Forum in Omaha Nebraska. We encourage all lions who want to see and learn how other Lions around the world support their communities to please plan to attend the next forum. The next USA/Canada Leadership Forum will be September 21-23 2017 in Portland, Oregon. Register online at: members.lionsforum.org. Register early.

I’ve covered the different membership categories available to your club members in past articles. Lions Clubs International (LCI) has special Membership Programs for families, college students, former Lions, young adults, and veterans that we sometimes miss in the normal routine of running our clubs.
Regular Member is the standard membership where a member pays a onetime entrance fee of $25 or charter fee of $30 and full annual international dues of $43 to Lions Clubs International (LCI), and is the program we are most familiar with. However, here are additional programs that you may not be aware of that are available to us and may help with our recruitment of new members.
The Family Membership Program gives families the opportunity to receive a special dues discount when they join a Lions club together. The first family member (head-of-household) pays full International dues of $43, and up to four (4) additional family members pay only half the annual dues of $21.50. All family members pay the one-time entrance fee of $25 or charter fee of $30. This program is open to family members who are (1) eligible for Lions membership (2) currently in or joining the same club, and (3) living in the same household and related by birth, marriage, or other legal relationship. To receive this dues rate complete the Family Unit Certification Form and submit it with the MMR or complete the certificate on My LCI. When chartering a new club complete the certification on the Report of Charter Members.
