TN District 12-O Lions Information For Club Officers Lions Clubs International Celebrating 100 Years of Service What we hope to accomplish today:
Provide an overview of your opportunity to Lead your club and serve your community. Review club officers responsibilities including the new Club Action Team. Discuss your Goals as club officers and the Governors goals for District 12-O. Review Resources to help you have a great year. Share some upcoming activities and events. After being elected officer
of your club, you are probably asking. What do I do now ?? LEADERSHIP Leadership is mobilizing the actions and efforts of others to achieve common goals. INSPIRE To be a good leader you have to inspire the members of your club.
Inspire means "to breathe life into How can you do that? Get Members Involved! Members who are directly involved in the decision making process participate much more enthusiastically than those who just carry out a leaders order. Listen to them and incorporate their ideas whenever it makes sense to do so. Understand What Lions Clubs International Really Is:
LCI is commonly known as the worlds largest, most active service organization, but what we really are, is people. As the leader your primary responsibility is to develop members and enable them to reach their full potential. Understand What Lions
Clubs International Really Is: Lions are People who improve lives every day: KidSight Outreach White Cane LCIF Unlimited number of club activities. Our new Low Vision Program, tnlionslowvision.org Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,
