THE MANE EVENT - Leadership and Membership Seminar

Majestic LionWhat is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a lion? It's boldness? It's majestic carriage? It's unwavering confidence? Perhaps it is it's magnificent appearance... that spectacular mane. It is said the fuller the mane the stronger the lion. That's more than likely what we think when we think of a lion, we think of strength. It is that individual lion's strength that contributes to the strength of the entire pride, just like our individual clubs make our association strong and able to thrive. It is the state of our clubs that determines our impact, and the stater of our clubs is founded on membership and leadership.

This is the focus of THE MANE EVENT coming to the USA/Canada Lions Leadership Forum, on Thursday, September 11, 2014, a very special early time slot for a very special event!

THE MANE EVENT will be very interactive, and will bring a high level of energy, information and fun. A team of presenters will will deliver messages related to a wide variety of membership and leadership issues and ideas, and we are planning for lots of audience participation. The event will be fast paced, yet will provide time for your consideration and discussion. Many of the topics covered will have related seminars later in the forum, providing additional information, ideas, solutions and strategies. Oh and did I tell you, that there will be prizes and surprises?

If you are looking for something new and innovative - that will stimulate your thinking while having some fun, then I invite you to loin me at THE MANE EVENT. Get ready to dig down deep, let it go, and ROAR like a Lion!

Joe Preston
Honorary Chairperson
