GLOBAL SERVICE TEAM (GST)
GLOBAL SERVICE TEAM CHAIRPERSON MESSAGE - March 2022
Lions Resource Center - lionsclubs.org/en/resources-for-members/resource-center
Lions Clubs everywhere continue to work to Serve the communities that they call home. Lions Clubs International supports this and has a collection of resources for members to use to help them along the way. Lions Clubs have been doing similar things for years and there is no need to start from scratch on some things. LCI brings them together all in one place in the Lions Resource Center.
The Lions Resource Center is a collection of forms, guides, presentations, videos, logos and much more. When you go to the link listed in the title above you come to a page that allows you to do several things. First you can search for a keyword of something that you might be looking for. I entered the word “Service” and the site returned 160 different resources from partnership information, to service project planners, to fundraising guides like seen in the images below.
The site can also be filtered by category, audience, cause, and others. You will find information here categorized by topic. You can find much more than Service ideas here as well. Basically, anything needed for Club operation and membership development can be located. The audience focused on is another area that can be filtered. No matter if you are a Club or District Officer or our general membership you can find items here to help you in your growth as a Lion.
The Cause filter focuses on the causes that we focus on through Lions Clubs International – Childhood Cancer, Diabetes, Disaster Relief, Environment, Humanitarian, Hunger, Vision, and Youth. Is your Club looking for new Service ideas? Maybe your Club does projects in these categories already and are looking for something different to do. Check out the brochures, presentations, flyers, forms, and reference materials here to get some new ideas.
A lot of the Clubs in our District do not have Club Service Chairpersons. We are soon to be holding Club officer nominations and elections. If you want to find out more about the duties and resources for a Club-GST, filter the page by Audience – Club Service Chairperson and find everything that comes up. There is even a Club Service Chairperson manual. This position has existed for several years now and it is time that all Clubs in District 14-E have a Club level GST.
As always I can be contacted as a source of information and help as well.
Yours in Service,
PDG Lance H. Remic
Global Service Team Chairperson, District 14-E
