A Quick reference guide to Membership option for New Lion
Every club needs members in order to achieve its service goals. To help clubs recruit new members, LCI offers several membership options to community members who want to volunteer and serve their communities as Lions.
In addition to regular membership, LCI offers special membership programs for families, college students, former Leos and young adults.
This is our "standard" membership. Regular membership is for community members interested in volunteering, serving the community and making our world a better place. Regular members pay an entrance fee (US$35) or charterfee (US$35) and full international dues (US$43). Additional district, multiple-district and club dues apply.
The Family Membership Program provides families with the opportunity to receive a special dues discount when they join a Lions club together. The first family member (head of household) pays full international dues (US$43), and up to four additional family members pay only half the international dues (US$21.50). All family members pay the one-time entrance fee (US$35) or charter fee (US$35). The Family Membership Program is open to family members who are (1) eligible for Lions membership, (2) currently in or joining the same club, and (3) living in the same household and related by birth, marriage or other legal relationship. To receive the family membership dues rate, complete the Family Unit Certification Form and submit it with the MMR, or complete the certification on MyLCI. When chartering a club, complete the certification on the Report of Charter Members.
Student membership allows students to make new friends and help others in their community at the same time. Students enrolled in an educational institution who are between the age of legal majority and through age 30 pay no entrance or charter fee and half international dues (US$21.50). Students over age 30 who are joining a Campus Lions club pay a US$10 entrance fee and full international dues. To receive the student-member dues rate, complete the Student Member Certification Form and submit with the MMR, or complete the certification on My LCI. When chartering a club, complete the certification on the Report of Charter Members.
Leo Lion Member
Leo Lion membership allows current or former Leos between the age of legal majority and through age 30, who have been a Leo for at least a year and a day, to continue doing volunteer work with LCI as a Lion. Leo Lions pay no entrance fee or charter fee and pay half international dues (US$21.50). To receive the Leo Lion dues rate, complete the Leo to Lion Certification and Years of Service Form and submit with the MMR or club charter application, or complete the certification on MyLCI. To encourage Leo Lions to invite their friends, young adults between the age of legal majority and through age 30 who join a Leo Lions club receive the same fee waivers and dues discounts as Leo to Lion members.
