New Club Development Workshops

New Club Development Workshops

New Club Development Workshops are available in a flexible three, four or five day format in the following areas:

District Global Membership Team (GMT) members can submit a request to have a new club development consultant come to their district to train and assist in the formation of new clubs. Consultants are Lions with extensive knowledge in chartering new clubs and are ready to assist your district.

To request a workshop, complete the online form by clicking on the appropriate area above. Staff will review the request and if approved, the district will be assigned a new club development consultant. The club organizer will then work closely with the consultant on the logistics of the workshop and the district's objectives.


If after eight weeks your club has not been chartered, your district agrees to submit paperwork for a club branch while continuing to recruit the minimum of 20 members needed to charter.

Optional, but strongly encouraged

The club organizer will work with the consultant to ensure the following are completed by the fistrict prior to the workshop:

  1. Identify two Certified Guiding Lions.
  2. Complete a Community Needs Assessment for the prospective area(s).
  3. Schedule meetings with community leaders to inform and invite them to become a member.
  4. Print out recruiting flyers with details of the informational meeting to hand out while recruiting.
