Global Action Team (GAT) - GLT, GMT, GST

The Global Action Team (GAT) structure is a "bottom-up" approach to support clubs. It is an entire Lions network designed to work for clubs. The following is how this approach works for the clubs in Area C (MDC).

At the Club Level
Each club president is automatically the club's Global Action Team (GAT) club chairperson. This chairperson reports directly to the GAT district chairperson - the district governor.  The roles and responsibilites of the GAT club chairperson can be found here.


At the District Level
Each district has a GAT district chairperson which is automatically the district governor for that district.  Under the district governor are the GLT coordinator, GMT coordinator, and GST coordinator appointed by the district governor.  Depending on the constitution and bylaws of the district, the appointments can be from one to three years.
