Family Membership Program FAQ
How Does The Family Membership Dues Program Work?
The first family member (head of household) pays the entrance fee (US$25) or charter fee (US$30), and full international dues (US$41). Up to four additional qualifying family members (those who live in the same household and have membership in the same club) pay no entrance or charter fee and half international dues (US$20.50).
To enable Lions Clubs International to continue providing valuable and enhanced services to Lions, beginning July 1, 2013, all new family members will pay the one-time entrance or charter fee. Up to four additional qualifying family members will still pay only half international dues. This change will not impact existing family-member Lions.
Can a Life Member be Part of a Family Unit?
Yes. When completing the Family Unit Certification Form (pdf), the Life Member should be listed as the head of household.
Can Young Children be Part of a Family Unit?
Formal membership is limited to individuals who are above the age of majority. Clubs are encouraged to allow children to volunteer in age appropriate activities and sponsor a Leo Club.
How Does my Family Get Certified as a Family Unit?
The club secretary must submit the Family Unit Certification Form (pdf) or file online when reporting a new member. Recertification is only necessary when there is a change of address or membership status.
How do I Drop a Family Member or Family Unit?
To drop a family member from the club roster, the member will first need to be removed from the family unit. Read the Family Unit Reporting Instructions (pdf) for further information.
