Second Vice District Governor Training

Program Overview

The Second Vice District Governor Training Program is designed to:

  • Identify specific roles and responsibilities of the second vice district governor
  • Address the leadership skills necessary to succeed as a member of the district governor team
  • Prepare the second vice district governor for his/her future roles as part of the district governor team and within the association.

Program Format

The Second Vice District Governor Training Program effectively combines online training (Phase 1) and an instructor-led training workshop (Phase 2) to maximize learning and meet the needs of second vice district governors.

The classroom-based portion of the program is designed to provide an interactive learning experience. Specific dates, times, and locations of the workshop will be determined by the Global Action Team - GLT multiple district coordinator and/or the Global Action Team area leader.

Phase One: Second Vice District Governor Online Training (Self-Study)

The Second Vice District Governor Orientation will provide an overview of the district governor team's responsibilities with a special focus on the second vice district governor and that role. In addition, it provides a list of resources that will be helpful as second vice district governors navigate through their year.

The Global Action Team Overview details the leadership, membership, service and LCIF structures within the team. The goal is to increase knowledge of the team’s responsibilities and the resources available to support it.

The online courses can be accessed through the Lions Learning Center (LLC). Instructions on how to access the LLC can be found here.
