Lions Self Training
The primary target for this manual are the volunteers, who take office as Club Officers each year, at the grass root level of Lions Clubs. We have tried to provide, in one place, the majority of the information you may need to run your club.
In addition, we hope to have provided you with a summary of important information on the District, Multiple District, and International aspects of Lions. This is a "must-have" document for every club. Download it here
In the past, after the compexities of actually creating your own club website, one of the struggles about managing a club website has always been keeping it up to date. You needed some fairly good, if not advanced, computer skills within your club to make this happen. You then had the ongoing expenses of web hosting and domain name registration.
This has all changed! The new district Oz Clubhouse program makes it really easy for your club to both build and maintain their own Lions Club website. You no longer need to be a computer expert, just some basic computer skills, some imagination, and some perserverence are all that are required. Best of all, this is all FREE! Your website is hosted by Lions at absolutely no charge to the club. A document containing detailed instructions for creating and editing your own club website can be downloaded here
There is also a fairly comprehensive Help Page available which is updated regularly to help Webmasters with solutions and tips and some great videos on how to best use the system.
So take the plunge and give it a try - you can't break it if you make a mistake! If you get stuck, have questions or need assistance, you can always contact the 201V5 Webmaster on firstname.lastname@example.org for help.
