Every club needs members in order

to achieve its service goals!


In addition to regular membership, LCI offers special membership programs for families, college students, former Leos and young adults.

Regular Member

This is our “standard” membership. Regular membership is for community members interested in volunteering, serving the community and making our world a better place. Regular members pay an entrance fee (US$35) and full international dues (US$35). Additional district, multiple-district and club dues apply.

Family Member

The Family Membership Program provides families with the opportunity to receive a special dues discount when they join a Lions club together. The first family member (head of household) pays full international dues (US$70), and up to four additional family members pay only (US$50.00). The Family Membership Program is open to family members who are

(1) eligible for Lions membership                                                                                         

 (2) currently in or joining the same club                                                                                 

 (3) living in the same household and related by birth, marriage or other legal relationship.   

To receive the family membership dues rate, complete the Family Unit Certification Form and submit it with the MMR, or complete the certification on MyLCI.
