Emerging Lions Leadership Institutes

Emerging Lions Leadership Institutes focus on building the skills of Lions members for leadership opportunities at the club level, including the position of club president

Candidates must be Lions in good standing who have successfully served on a club committee and who have not yet attained the level of club president. Charter club presidents are also eligible for this institute.

Candidates must be willing to commit to every day of the institute. Participation is limited to Lions from the Constitutional/geographical area noted in the schedule below.


Lions who meet the qualifications may apply to the Emerging Lions Leadership Institute. Applications will be available four months prior to the event. If you are interested in applying, please obtain a copy of the application from your Global Leadership Team District Coordinator or download the application from the list below. Because of the high number of applications received by the association, acceptance into the institute is not guaranteed.

Cost of the Institute

Lions Clubs International will provide meals and lodging according to the schedule of the institute. Please note that a non-refundable participation fee of US$95.00 will be required to offset these costs for all institutes. This fee will be due no less than four weeks prior to the institute start date. Please do not send funds until you receive a letter of acceptance to the institute. Participants are also responsible to pay for their own transportation and related travel expenses to and from the institute site.
