General Membership Information

Through membership in a Lions Club people not only help those in need, but have opportunities to develop personal friendships and gain valuable leadership skills.

Membership is open to men and women of legal majority and good reputation in the community, and is by invitation only. Clubs meet at least twice a month and elect officers annually. The Association is governed by an international Board of Directors.

Each year approximately 20,000 Lions attend the International Convention to discuss new ideas, share experiences and reaffirm friendships and fellowships.

Those interested in membership should contact the Membership Chair.
