DISTRICT GOVERNOR 2018 - 2019

"SERVING OUR COMMUNITIES 100 YEARS AND BEYOND"

AREAS OF CONCENTRATION

Let us keep in mind the Goals of our International President and in particular the new thrust of the Organization – Tackling Pediatric Cancer.
I would like to continue to focus of the following perennial issues which still need our concentration: -

DIABETES AWARENESS AND EDUCATION

The incidence of Diabetes continues to be a growing one in the District. Our role in keeping people aware of this disease. The emphasis will be on prevention through education.

THE ENVIRONMENT AND CLIMATE CHANGE

I would like to borrow these words from the LCI’s website “The health of our planet is essential to life.” Let us join with the International Organization in ensuring that we do all we can, to preserve our communities for future generation.

LEOS AND YOUTH AFFAIRS

(TRAINING TO TAKE ON MORE SIGNIFICANT ROLES AND MAKING THE TRANSITION TO BECOMING A LION EASIER) Statistics show that less than 20% of the youth arm of most organizations ever transition over to the parent organization and this is especially true of service organizations like ours.

Let us tackle this issue in a meaningful way by trying to understand the reasons and coming up with ways -even experimental ones as to how to improve these statistics.

GOALS

DEVELOPING THE LION AS INDIVIDUALS TO TAKE ON LEADERSHIP ROLES INSIDE THE CLUBS AND DISTRICT AND IDENTIFYING AT LEAST ONE (1) LION IN EACH OF OUR CLUBS AND PROVIDE TRAINING FOR LEADERSHIP ROLES AT HIGHER LEVELS (DISTRICT & BEYOND).

If our District is to continue to grow and be relevant, succession planning must be an integral part of our goals.

MEMBERSHIP GROWTH WITH PROPER RECRUITMENT BY IDENTIFYING INDIVIDUALS WHO CAN MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN OUR ORGANISATION WITH A NET GAIN OF AT LEAST TWO (2) NEW MEMBERS PER CLUB.

We must emphasize that “Membership Growth” is not just a numbers game and “quality” is not a vague concept. We must determine quality by asking what does the prospective member brings to the organization? What value does he/she adds in terms of resources (time, labour and means), integrity and growth?

THE CHARTERING OF AT LEAST TWO NEW CLUBS IN THE DISTRICT.

While I agree that bigger is not necessarily better, I am sure that we all agree that there is room for improvement and that we owe it to posterity to spread the influence and worth of this great organization. We can do this better by making our presence felt in those areas where needed.

THE LAUNCHING OF DISTRICT 60-B FORWARD WITH A FIVE (5) YEAR OUTLOOK.

We have had “5 Years plans” in the past but they all seem to have gone with the wind. This time around let us find a way to move the District Forward as one unit regardless of who is at the helm.
