Lions Leadership Institutes ( Leadership training courses)
These programmes are available to potential and existing lions leaders to help them develop the knowledge, skills and confidence which will assist them in their future roles.
ABOUT THE LIONS TRAINING INSTITUTES
The first two programmes are targeted at potential Lions leader at the club level. The third course (ALLI) is for Lions who have completed a successful term as club president, but have not yet attained the position of First Vice District Governor. They are all live-in courses running over three days (and two evenings) over a weekend.
ELLI is run by Lions Clubs International for all of our Constitutional Area (V11). It is open to Lions who have not yet served as a club President (exception for Charter Presidents). It is a three day live in programme and will attract applications from MD201, MD202 & MD307. As such places are limited and we are likely to only have 1 to 2 successful applicants from each district.
RLLI is run by our own Multiple District with funding assistance from Lions Clubs International so applicants will only come from MD201 making more spaces available. Although still targeted at the newer and potential Lions leaders, because we run this ourselves we are able to be a little more flexible on who can attend, so having been a club President for instance won’t immediately make the person ineligible. Also our Multiple District has taken the opportunity to include Leos (of adult age because it is live in) which helps to provide some invaluable interaction with younger people. We have a policy of moving the RLLI around from state to state so that it creates more opportunity for Lions to attend in their home state and help to reduce their travel costs. This does not mean it is restricted to applications from the host state.
Cost of ELLI and RLLI is $AU100 per applicant includes accommodation (twin share) and all meals - Participants are responsible to pay for their own transportation and related travel expenses to and from the institute site. Some clubs like to provide financial support to encourage leadership development in their club. Applicants can pay a single supplement if they prefer their own room
Cost of ALLI is $US125 with participants responsible for their own travel costs or in case the applicant has been elected 2nd VDG, the District will cover costs.
The cost of a Lion attending cannot be funded from Activities but we encourage Lions Clubs to consider funding or subsidising their members from their Administration funds as an investment in the club’s future.
As Leo’s are a project of Lions with an aim, in part, to develop leadership in young people, the cost of a Leo attending could be sponsored by their parent Lions club out of Activities funds.
