FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Why attend a Leadership Institute for Lions?
Training equips Lions with the skills, knowledge, and motivation to ensure that the highest possible level of service is provided. Training means developing more Lions leaders, and more leaders translates into greater service. In short, training makes Lions more effective.
Can attending the Leadership Institue affect membership retention?
Training can also influence membership. The wavering Lion that does not feel as though he or she can truly make a difference can be stimulated by new ideas discovered through training and interacting with other Lions. Through the sharing of ideas, success stories, and humanitarian endeavors, training unites Lions and solidifies their commitment to serving humankind.
The Leadership Insitute isn’t helpful for a “new” Lion is it?
It is very helpful! Training is an attractive benefit to new and potential members. Today’s volunteers view opportunities for personal and professional growth as a primary motive for volunteering. They want to serve their communities, but while doing so, learn new skills. Any organization that provides training enhances the volunteer experience by meeting the needs of the community and the member simultaneously. Training is just one more way Lions Clubs can enrich the lives of our members.
Who benefits from training?
Individual Lions, Lions clubs, the association, and even the community, all benefit from training. Through training, individual Lions can grow personally and professionally, expand their knowledge and skill base, and develop leadership and organizational skills. Plus, training provides an avenue for individual Lions to network with other Lions and learn from each other. Lions are innovative, resourceful and determined people who have knowledge to share, when given the opportunity. Lions build better communities, but training builds better Lions.
