Club Branch

Club branches are a way that a club can diversify their membership by engaging a small group of at least five people who want to make a difference in their community. Club branches allow people to serve as Lions who may not be inclined to join the parent club. 

Members of a club branch become part of an existing parent club, but may hold independent meetings and activities. The parent club appoints a branch liaison to serve as the go-between for the parent and the club branch, allowing club branches a high level of autonomy from their parent if that is desired.

What do I need to start a club branch?

  • At least 5 new or existing members
  • An existing club willing to engage these members as a branch of their club
  • A member of the parent club to serve as branch liaison
  • Notification sent to the District Governor
