Lions Worldwide Induction Day

The program provides an organized event to encourage membership recruitment and coordinated public relations to increase public awareness.

Concept
The program is planned around a high-profile induction ceremony conducted in April by each district on the same day around the world, preferably during a district and multiple district convention or another event. Each district develops a special program to honor new inductees. Many districts will organize a single district-wide event; other districts will encourage clubs and zones to develop their own program to honor the day. Lions Clubs International will provide participating districts and clubs with a planning guide, special commemorative new member certificates for each new inductee, and news releases for participating club presidents.

Implementation
The ceremony may include all Lions inducted during the year or during a membership campaign designated by the governor and may feature a special speaker or unique program. To make the program memorable, clubs and districts may consider organizing a group service project to show Lions’ commitment to service, design a special presentation that underscores the importance of Lions clubs to the community or host a reception in honor of the new members. To gain media coverage, participants are asked to invite city officials and the media to participate in the event.

A planning guide and special certificates are available to help you organize your event. For more information, please send your request to the New Clubs and Marketing Department:
