The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is continuing to impact the work of Lions around the world. As you know, it has also created financial hardships for our Lions and the people for whom we care.
To support the incredible men and women serving with us, the International Board of Directors unanimously passed another resolution to help our clubs.
Here is an overview of the new resolution approved by the Board of Directors:
Charter and entrance fees waiver – We have waived all charter and entrance fees from January 1 through June 30, 2021.
Flexible payments – No clubs in good standing on December 31, 2020 will be suspended or canceled through June 30, 2021 for late payment of dues. Full payment is required to be received before June 30, 2021 to avoid suspension or cancellation.
Please note that clubs placed on financial suspension on December 31, 2020 will remain on suspension until the full balance is paid. Those clubs will still need to address their outstanding dues or make arrangements for repayment with the Accounts Receivable Department at Lions Clubs International to avoid cancellation scheduled for March 1, 2021.
These additional measures will help Lions facing financial hardships and give our clubs the support and encouragement they need during these challenging times. For more than a century, Lions have taken on the greatest challenges facing humanity, and together, we will overcome this.
The world needs Lions now more than ever, so thank you for your outstanding service and commitment to our communities and the world.
