NEW    CLUB IN GOOD STANDING

How Does Your Club Measure Up?

The following was established at the District 49B Lions 2015 Convention:

“Clubs in Bad” Standing Proposal.CST Rixie responded to the cabinet’s previous request to create a standardized protocol and notice for clubs in bad standing and demand accountability and reconciliation, with a single page notice (attached).  After much discussion, implementation of the following protocol was passed.

  1. All clubs would receive a notice of this new protocol and a sample letter based on their club’s current status & practices, emphasizing both good and bad status

  2. When a club is identified/deemed in bad standing on any one of the six criteria for more than 30 days, the club officers will receive a “warning” notice. The notice will advise the club “

  3. When a club demonstrates no effort to change their status, (day 60) the district will issue an “execution” notice to the club members by way of e-mail and snail mail.The notice will advise the club “

  4. When a club continues to demonstrate no effort to change their status, (day 90) the district will issue a “follow-up” notice to the club members by way of e-mail and snail mail.  The notice will advise the club “Your club’s charter has been suspended and will be cancelled, effective (30 days from the date of this notice):  MMM DD, 2015, if immediate action is not taken.”   A notice will also be sent to the effected seat of government.
