Our club is on Vancouver Island - District MD 19 "I" as per map below:  (District MD 19-I has 52 Lions Clubs and 5 Lioness Clubs with a total membership of 1250 members and growing.  We are part of Lions Club International with a membership in 2015 of 1.4 million.)

DISTRICT 19-I

Lions Clubs are administered by a Board of Directors that meet monthly. The board consists of all the officers of the Club and it runs the business affairs of the Club, making recommendations for action to the general membership at the two monthly meetings and implements those approved thereby. Each local Club is connected to Lions Club Internatioal through a multiple-district. Ours is designated as MD-19 and our website is www.lionsmd19.com. MD-19 covers British Columbia, Washington & North Idaho.

The Multiple-District is divided into Districts with letter designations A through I. Each District has a District Governor who is elected by delegates representing each Club at the annual District Convention. Districts are further broken down in numbered units called Zones, consisting of Clubs within a relatively close geographical proximity. Each Zone is coordinated by a Zone Chair.

(The geographic jurisdiction of District 19-I includes all of Vancouver Island and its adjacent islands in the Province of BC, and a number of Lions Clubs situated on the Olympic Peninsula in the State of Washington. ~ See map above.

The business of each District is run by the Governor and his/ her cabinet which includes the Vice District Governor, the eight Zone Chairs and the various committee chairs. A portion of Club dues goes to support the District and LCI.  Basically, Lions International establishes by-laws, rules for how Clubs are to manage their funds, and develops the overarching goals for Lions. LCI provides the vehicle for focusing financial and volunteer aid on places in need around the world. Within that structure, the local Club has wide latitude to develop its own charitable activities and determine how best to deliver support at the local level.

Through the Lions organization, the individual member has opportunities to grow in leadership and service to others and have an impact on local, regional and ultimately, global needs.
