Lions Officer Report PU101
A word from our District 10 Global Membership Chair – PDG Bill Rowe:
One of District Governor Svinicki’s goals for his year as Governor was to have each Club in the District add one new member. Since 1 July 2021, 27 of the 50 clubs in the district have done it. However, this means that 23 clubs have not.
As a District, we have added 114 new members which is great, however, the Governor would like to see all of the clubs in the District survive and grow.
Let’s see if we can increase the number of clubs with a new member to 100%.

D10 Technology Grant Program
The District 10 Lions announce a new grant program for District 10 Lions Clubs. The D10 Technology Grant Program is an opportunity for Lions Clubs in D10 to receive up to $500 in “matching” funds from D10 for the purpose of purchasing technology infrastructure to assist in their mission to serve the communities of District 10.
As Global Membership Chair, I request packets from the International. When new members are posted on the International site, we print out certificates and letters from the Governor for both sponsor and new member. These are then mailed to the secretary or president of the club, and usually arrive within two days.
The packets also include information on Lions, a discount certificate from the Lions store, pins for both new member and sponsor, and a pen for the new member.
If you would like to receive the packets early, just email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the new member, the name of the sponsor, and the date of the induction.
