2E2 OFFICER’S COUNCIL MEETING

Hello Presidents, Secretaries, Treasurers and Lions of District 2E2.    We have an important meeting coming on March 23rd.  Please mark your calendars!!! ………….
Several years ago, District 2E2 had an Officers Council which met once a month.  This was a time that the officers of our clubs and any member who wished to attend came together to discuss their club and what was going on… things such of fundraisers, great ideas that has worked for your club, problems to see if others had a solution, a time to share District information…dates for upcoming meetings, the rules for the youth contests and the applications etc.  This was a way to keep our District informed of what was going on. We met at the Keller Lions Club the third Thursday of each month and usually had 60-70 Lions in attendance. Unfortunately, this meeting went away.   We would like to start having a similar meeting again,  Not every month, but for now twice a year.   We have planned our first meeting to be on March 23rd.   I am asking for you to put this date on your calendar.   The time will be from 10:00 to 12:00 and lunch will be served (no cost to your).   We are looking at also having a Basic Social Media class following lunch for those that would like to learn more about how we can promote our clubs and find new members thru this outlet.   I personally don’t have a clue about Instagram, and all those other ones that are used.   This will be an exciting meeting and I am looking forward to seeing you there.   Location will be announced as soon as the arrangements are made.
Please let me know if you have any questions or if there is anything I can do for you.   DGE Suzi, GMT, CI
Location forthcoming!
