Beginning January 1, 2018, club charter applications will only be accepted online via MyLCI. This change will expedite the club chartering process and is in accordance with board policy adopted in October 2016.

Club Branch

Club Branch

Club branches enable a small group of at least 5 people to form a Lions club and start making a difference in their community sooner. Wherever there is need, a club branch can help.

Members become part of an existing "parent" Lions club, but hold independent meetings and facilitate their own projects. Club branches elect a branch president, secretary and treasurer to lead the branch. The parent club appoints a branch liaison to serve as the go-between for the parent and branch.

In order to give club branches more autonomy, recent changes to board policy have been made.

To get started, request a Club Branch Kit or download the items below:

Once the club builds to 20 members, the branch may charter a new club. Submit the Club Branch Conversion Form with the new club charter application to receive transfer fee exemption.
