The Club Quality Initiative (CEP)

The Club Quality Initiative (CEP) is a program dedicated to club improvement. CEP is a comprehensive process to improve club health, enhance the membership experience and improve service to their local communities.
Clubs can choose between two versions:

– Pro is a facilitator-led workshop. It’s designed for clubs that would like to have a trained Lion facilitator come in and guide members through the workshop.

– Lite is a self-guided workshop. It’s designed for clubs that would prefer to have a member of their club lead the workshop.

During a workshop, clubs gauge the success of their club by looking at the needs within their communities, determine strategies for improving club health, and develop goals and action plans for the continuous improvement of their club. Each step of the process takes approximately one hour to complete.
