Clubs and districts that excel in community service, membership growth, communication and organizational management may qualify for the prestigious Excellence Awards. Please use the qualifications outlined in the club or district application as your road map to excellence.
Club Excellence Award: Clubs receive a distinguished banner patch to proudly display on their banner and the club president receives a Club Excellence Pin to proudly recognize his or her outstanding leadership.
District Governor Team Excellence Award: District team members qualify for the award when their district excels in the categories noted above. Qualifying zone chairpersons and region chairpersons receive beautiful lapel pins, while the district governor, first vice district governor and second vice district governor receive prestigious medals to honor and recognize their leadership and dedication.
In order to be considered for an Excellence Award, clubs and district teams are asked to complete the award application and mail the form to the English Language Department at International Headquarters, or fax it to (630) 706-9130, to arrive no later than September 30.
District Governors have the opportunity to earn a crystal Pride of Excellence Award and the Ambassador of Goodwill Medal by encouraging clubs to submit their Club Excellence Award application early! The top five districts in each constitutional area that have the largest percentage of their clubs achieve the Club Excellence Award will receive the Pride of Excellence Award. The leading District Governor from each constitutional area will have the honor of receiving the Pride of Excellence Award on stage during the Convention. The other recipients will have their names prominently displayed during this historic ceremony. The District Governor with the highest percentage of clubs that achieve the Club Excellence Award worldwide will also receive the Ambassador of Goodwill Medal, the highest award granted to a Lion, in Honolulu!
To qualify, the clubs must submit their Club Excellence Award early on or before May 31, 2015. The award will be based on the membership gain as of April 30, 2015 and the clubs must meet the other requirements listed on the application. Since the club officer report is not required until May, this report may be submitted at a later date.
Membership growth will need to be maintained through June 30, 2015.
