CRITICAL 100th LCI Convention MD1 Activities -- Please Read
Apr-03-2017
The COUNT DOWN is now at less than 100 days until the 100th annual Lions Clubs Int'l convention in Chicago. Every Week we will now start highlighting some very strategic and important items for all Lions, especially the Lions of Illinois as we complete our convention hosting planning and preparation activities. Critical activities right now include:
 
1. THE CLOCK
The clock is now ticking to the start of the convention on June 30th. 90 days will go by very quickly.
 
2. REGISTRATION
If you not registered for the convention and secured your hotel room, please do so this week. More than 31,000 Lions have completed their registrations. And, we are now spread across 34 hotels downtown with 18 of the booked solid. We expect total registrations and total hotels to continue to grow in the short term.
 
3. VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Please consider volunteering for any committee in any time slot. We still need many many volunteers to fill an estimated total of 3,100 shifts of a couple hours each. You do not need to volunteer for a very long time, but we can use every committed volunteer we can get. Consider signing up now online here:
 
http://www.lions2017chicago.org/volunteer-form
 
4. CLUB STREET BANNER SPONSORSHIP
Please ask your club to consider sponsoring a street banner to hang downtown during the Convention. We will try and get your back to you after the convention. Your club's sponsorship is directly impactful on the MD1 Host Committee budget and your support is VERY MUCH appreciated. See the order form at this link:
 
http://www.lions2017chicago.org/order-now/street-banner-sponsorship/
 
5. THE HOURGLASS
With the clock ticking and us being 90 days from the start of the convention, there are many things that have registration or ordering deadlines. Waiting too much longer can put your participation in and enjoyment of the convention behind the 8 ball. Please consider wrapping up all of the above this week.
 
6. SPREAD THE WORD
Please Like and share via FB or email this update and future weekly updates to all the Lions you know.
 
Thank you for helping to make our 100th Int'l Convention special and great!!

Feb-18-2017

2/18/17 --Our site is in the process of getting a makeover.  Teh old IBM/Lotus Quickr product is now history.  The new site is fully compatible with all web browsers.  Much of the prior content has been moved into the new site.  The same basic structure exists but some content has been better organized.  Please take a look around to familairize yourself with the new site.  Some of the older material has been put into the new site.  Most of the older material in the site archives was not moved into the new site.  Should you need older material, please contact our keeper of the District arhive, our Cabinet Secretary, Lion Jeff Bathe (jefferey.bathe@gmail.com).  Please snd all site comments, questions, suggestiosn and concerns to me, IT Chair, at tom@drez.net.  Our site currently has no secure login area, but it will have one soon to house at least the prior cabinet meeting reports.
