Leo club advisors

Leo club advisors are Lions who enjoy working with young people and guide Leos in managing club activities and developing effective community service projects. Advisors also foster the leadership development of Leos by creating an environment for learning and connecting Leos with community leaders.

Leo member reporting

 

Lions Clubs International is committed to growing the program to 200,000 reported Leo members by 2026. Leo club advisors play an important role in helping meet this goal — they are responsible for reporting Leo club officers, who in turn may report their club’s members in MyLCI. The graphic below highlights our progress in reaching our goal.

Need help reporting via MyLCI? Read the step-by-step guide to reporting Leo club advisors and officers as well as our reporting FAQ.

For districts that do not use MyLCI, clubs can submit the Leo-72 form.

 

Currently over 170,000+

Goal: 200,000 reported Leos

Responsibilities

 

Leo club advisors should adjust their leadership approach based on the Leo club track. Younger Alpha Leos typically need more guidance and direction than older Alpha Leos, while Omega Leos may work more independently. Some examples of Leo club advisor responsibilities include:

  • Ensuring any club officers and members who can be reported are reported 
  • Promoting Leo club activities
  • Attending each Leo club and board of directors meeting
  • Serving as the liaison between the sponsoring Lions club and the Leo club  
  • Ensuring new Leos receive orientation and new member materials
  • Recognizing Leos for their achievements
  • Encouraging Leos to become Lions through the Leo-Lion Program

Leo club materials and supplies

 

Leo membership cards, certificates and new member guides are available for download through MyLCI

Many materials can also be downloaded from the Leo Club Resources section of the Lions Clubs International website.
