Here are some resources to get you acquainted with being a member of the world’s largest service organization, Lions International, as well as it’s subgroups, Multiple District 4 (California Lions), District 4 (Lions of San Francisco County, San Mateo County, and the City of Palo Alto), and your specific Lions Club.

For Their Sponsors

The importance of new member orientation cannot be emphasized enough. The information presented during orientation provides a foundation for new members. It helps them understand how the club functions, what their role will be and gives them the big picture of their district and the association. When new members are properly informed, they are more likely to feel comfortable with the club, become actively involved in club activities and remain in Lions for years.

Lions International, Member Orientation

The District recommends that sponsors hold a “New Member Orientation” with their new members, either individually or in a group setting. To help you with this, we have selected the following resources.
