Club charters may be cancelled for the following reasons:
1. Members of the club vote to disband. When this decision is made, the club notifies the district governor. The district governor advises the English Language Department of the club’s request for cancellation along with a proof of payment for any outstanding balance the club owed the association.
Coordinating Lions recommend cancellation of clubs in undistricted areas.
2. A status quo club is not returned to active status in 90 days.
The boundaries of the club are the boundaries of the municipality or equivalent government subdivision in which the club is located.
Club Mergers and Name Changes
Two or more Lions clubs may wish to merge into one. The district governor submits the Merger Request form (DA-979) to the English Language Department. This form provides guidelines to follow and is included on the District Governor Manual CD-ROM.
A Club Name Change Request form (DA-980) is submitted from the club to the English Language Department. This form provides guidelines to follow and is included on the District Governor Manual CD-ROM.
