Dear GLT District Coordinators and District Governors:
The next Advanced (Senior) Lions Leadership Institute for the USA, its affiliates, Bermuda and Bahamas will be offered in Oak Brook, Illinois on February 22-25, 2013. We seek your assistance to help recruit qualified Lion participants for the institute. It is a valuable opportunity to build on skills that enhance the leadership qualities at the zone, region and district levels.
The institute in Oak Brook is designated as an Advanced (Senior) Lions Leadership Institute and is targeted to Lions that have completed a successful term as club president, but have not yet attained the position of first vice district governor. Lions who are region and zone chairpersons, as well as second vice district governors are encouraged to apply to this institute. Candidates do not have to hold a position currently (for details, see the enclosed application materials).
Lions Clubs International will provide meals and lodging in strict accordance with to the schedule of the institute. Additionally, LCI will make appropriate hotel reservations for each participant on a twin-share basis. Please note that according to new board policy, a non-refundable participation fee of US$95.00 will be required to offset these costs for all institutes. This fee will be due no less than four weeks prior to the institute start date. Participants are responsible for all travel expenses to and from the designated venue inclusive to all relevant ground transportation charges.
Please help us to recruit qualified Lions for this institute by providing a copy of the application packet to Lions leaders in your district, including your district governor team, region and zone chairpersons, to remind them of this event. Please ask them to promote the institute and actively encourage qualified candidates to apply. The success of this institute depends on the participation of Lions leaders from across your constitutional area. The application packet is available on the web site:
We will be accepting 100 Lions, total, with 25 in each of four English speaking classrooms.
Completed forms must be returned by December 9, 2012.
