District 201V5 Training Program Schedule

Below you will find a list of the various training programs run within District 201v5 along with a short synopsis of each session.

Club Development days

This program is for both incoming officers and any club members who want to find out more about the roles and responsibilities of Club Officers. It will also include sessions on managing effective meetings, using MyLCI Website and communication skills. 

In 2016 each day will involve role-based training sessions in the morning with special interest forums in the afternoon – all Lions can attend the full day regardless of holding positions or not.  In particular we’d like to encourage any new members to come along and learn more about Lions and what future opportunities may be available to them.

Lions, as with any other organisation, are subject to change, and new procedures and systems that affect the various roles within Lions are being introduced all the time and this is a great opportunity for all Lions to catch up with these advances.

The Sessions

Incoming club officers are provided each year with training sessions for their positions by District 201V5 – tailored for Presidents, Secretaries, Treasurers, Membership Chairmen and New Members – and this year, following on the success of 2015, we are continuing to open up these sessions to anyone interested in those areas. You do not have to be an office holder.

Forums will include such topics as: Applying for grants, Talking Your Passion, How to interact with your local community and Planning a Project. These forums will be run concurrently in the afternoon which will give everyone a chance to attend the topic of their choice.                                                                       

There are 2 training dates scheduled for people to choose from – just nominate your choice.

Each attendee needs to have booked and prepaid before RSVP closure to assist with planning of materials and catering.  There will be additional charges for any late applications.

Don't Stress

Stop wasting your time and get the best out of technology. Are your emails driving you mad, or you can’t find anything? Do you struggle with correspondence and minutes, or your web site doesn’t work for you, or MYLCI is a complete myth and your project management is a disaster?

Then you need to come and join in with Don’t Stress  - Organise Yourself.

The course will cover:



Welcome to our MYLCI Training Program. This is your opportunity to learn about all aspects of MyLCI and all you can discover on the LCI website.  After the program, you will be able to discover much information about Lions and maintain your club records on the LCI website

This is a great opportunity to learn how to best manage your club’s information and in turn learn much more from the LCI website


New Member

We would like to invite you to our New Member Training Program. This is your opportunity to increase your knowledge of Lions and to interact with a panel of senior Lions and get answers to any of the questions you may have.   In addition to increasing your knowledge of Lions, this is also an opportunity to develop your understanding of the variety of projects Lions carry out and the development opportunities available to you as a Lion.


Personal Development

Lions have the tools and the people to help us fulfil roles that we never thought we would be doing – either within Lions or in your private/work life. Leadership roles, projects, public speaking, administration or hands on work. This is a special invitation to some of the best personal development sessions around and numbers are limited so register early to secure a spot.

This fantastic development opportunity will be spread over two consecutive days, over one weekend - the sessions are free but there is a small catering fee payable.

There is no catch involved – it’s just an offer you might enjoy which may perhaps lead, at your own choice, to other things in future.  This is a great opportunity to take on new skills which can be used in different parts of your life - personal, work or Lions environments – not to mention building your self confidence in a safe environment.

Topics will include things like: working with others who are not like you, enhancing your communication skills, making an impact, dealing with tough conversations, enhancing your influencing skills, building stronger relationships and networks, working in a high performing team, coaching and mentoring, and setting personal goals.


Presentation Skills

Lions District 201V5 has long had a philosophy of assisting our members develop and/or refresh their skills and some years ago adopted a program of training programs that enables our members to attain the skills necessary to assist them in their roles within Lions.    In keeping with this approach, we are conducting a Presentation Skills Training Program in July and invite you to join us. This is your opportunity to learn how to speak in public in a way which is enjoyable for both you and your audience. It is a program which also seeks to enable you to take a lot of the stress out of public speaking.

Topics covered include:

What makes a great presenter, Steps in preparing a presentation, Structuring your presentation, Understanding your audience, Supporting materials and visual aids, Delivering your presentation, Body language and Handling the question and answer period.  We would like you to join us for this program and have fun whilst learning new skills or refreshing those skills you already possess.


Website / Social Media

This hands-on training course is designed to enable the newly assigned club website administrator to easily maintain and update their Lions OzClubhouse website.  No specific web skills are needed as such - just the basic use of Word and an understanding of how to get around on the web.


Zone Chairs

This training will run from 9.30am and finish at 2.30pm.  There will be no cost for participants and they will be issued with Manuals on the day.   It is important that they attend as it will assist in helping them to set up for the year.   NB This is a direct invitation to attend (ie sent as a personal invitation).
