USA-Canada Forum COVID Precautions
Aug-30-2021

Update to Forum COVID Precautions

As the USA/Canada Lions Leadership Forum approaches, we unfortunately continue to see COVID cases continue to rise. Below are details of the precautions the Forum will be taking, but I wanted to highlight the significant change up front:

Due to some limitations in being able to maintain social distances during sanctioned Forum activities at the Iowa Events Center, face coverings are to be worn in the facility with limited exceptions (e.g. when eating or when you are able to be socially distanced).

I know there is a wide range of opinions and positions people have on the topic and it has unfortunately become highly politicized.  This is not a political decision, but a humanitarian one that closely aligns with our mission as Lions.  With attendees coming from all corners of the U.S. as well as Canada, the Caribbean, and other countries, we can help prevent the spread of the virus, protect others, and return safely to lead our communities into the future!  Thank you for your understanding.

Here are a summary of the preventative steps the Forum is taking:

  • As noted above, face coverings are to be worn during Forum events inside the Iowa Events Center, with limited exceptions.  This applies to attendees and facility staff.
  • Face coverings will be available in Forum offices and seminar rooms if anyone needs, forgets, or damages theirs.
  • For meal sessions, we are planning on 6 people/table (instead of the standard 10) to allow for more distance when masks are removed by necessity for eating.
  • Seminar room chairs will be hooked together in rows to maintain order, so they will be close.  However, there will be a little more room than usual between rows to allow for easier passing between people, and the seating will be “overset” for the expected number of attendees, giving flexibility for people who want extra space around them.  The Lions University Graduation is likely to be an exception, as graduates may need to be seated close together to accommodate everyone.
  • Sanitizing wipes will be available in seminar rooms for microphones or other high use surfaces.
  • Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the facility

For other activities surrounding the Forum outside the Iowa Events Center, the CDC/Polk County (Iowa) guidance that face coverings should be worn regardless of vaccination status applies.  This includes areas where attendees have greater control on social distancing, such as private gatherings, hotels, Skywalk, transportation, etc. There are no specific guidelines for outdoor activities.

Here are a few public references that may be helpful to you:

Additional information about the Forum will be coming next week, but for now, here  is a link to the video and handout of the First Timer's virtual session held on Thursday, August 26.   

am so proud of the amazing event that we have planned, including several unique features or opportunities that I haven’t experienced in my 19 prior Forums.  We want each of you to leave Des Moines charged, ready to lead, and remembering #LionsForum2021 for all the right reasons!

I look forward to seeing you in two short weeks!

Serving from the Heart,

Wendy Cain

MD1 Call to State Convention (May 15th via Zoom)
Mar-07-2021

 

OFFICIAL CALL TO THE MD-1 STATE CONVENTION 
May 15, 2021 via Zoom
 
Hello Fellow Lions and Leos of MD-1,
 
Our 100th Annual MD-1 Convention will be held May 15, 2021.  Because of the pandemic restrictions related to the size of gatherings, this year’s convention will be held virtually via ZOOM. All Lions and Leos are invited to attend.
 
This will be the first – and hopefully only – virtual state convention.  The convention committee has spent a lot of time and effort working on this event.  I want to thank State Convention Chair Lion Terri Pasternik for her efforts working through uncharted waters this year.
 
Agenda
Because this is a virtual event there will be no charge for attending so you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home. The agenda is still being finalized but we expect the first plenary session to run from 1:00 to 3:00, followed by district caucuses and voting, with the second and final plenary session running from 6:00 to around 8:15.
 
Some of the highlights include hearing from our International Guest, recognition of State and International Presidential award recipients, a necrology service, voting on 4 constitutional resolutions, the announcement of the LIF Sight-And-Sound Sweepstakes winners, the revealing of next year’s Council Chair and State Chairs, and six gift card giveaways.
 
International Guest
Our International Guest this year is Past International President Clem Kusiak.  PIP Clem is excited to be visiting with the Lions of Illinois and we look forward to having him with us via Zoom on May 15 th.
 
Registration
As stated earlier, registration is free this year but to attend or be a delegate you must register.  The registration link and information will be sent out within the next day or two.
 
Voting Information
This year’s election will be held using Election Runner, an approved LCI electronic election program.  All voting will occur between 3:00 PM and 5:45 PM on Saturday, May 15, 2021 using this software.
 
Delegates
Clubs will be entitled to the number of delegates based on their membership according to Lions International as of April 1, 2021. Each Club gets 1 delegate per 10 members or major fraction.
 
Example – a Club with 26-34 members gets 3 delegates.  A Club with 35-44 members gets 4 delegates.  PDGs should be listed as delegates and do not count toward the club’s number of allowed delegates.
 
Each Club will return their delegate form, to be received by their district Secretary by no later than May 5, 2021.
 
Then, each district Secretary will submit Club delegate forms to the State SST - to be received by the SST no later than May 10, 2021.
 
Your Club MUST be in Good Standing to be able to vote – that means the Club is current with their District and MD-1 State dues by April 30, 2021. This is 15 days prior to the convention in accordance with the MD-1 C&BL.
 
Once your Club’s delegate form is received by SST Mary and your Club is verified to be in good standing, CC Joe Vinyard will issue an email to each delegate with their unique Username and Password for the Election Runner software during the week of May 10, 2021. 
 
Delegates MUST have an email address to be able to vote.
 
Delegates MUST be registered for the convention.
 
Resolutions
Attached to this email are the 4 constitutional Resolutions that will be on the ballot this year.
 
Please bear with us as we work though some unprecedented circumstances to put on a successful convention for the Lions of Illinois.  We look forward to “seeing” you on May 15 th at our 100 th state convention.
 
Thank you for all you are doing to serve your communities!!
 
Joe Vinyard                                                    
MD-1 Council Chairperson

Update - Lions of Illinois MD-1 Convention Will be Virtual This Year
Feb-08-2021
Update - Lions of Illinois MD-1 Convention Will be Virtual This Year
-------------------------------------
Hello Fellow Lions,
 
It is with much disappointment that we must announce that the MD-1 State Convention to be held May 13-16, 2021 at the Abraham Lincoln Hotel in Springfield will now be a virtual convention. This unanimous decision was made by the Executive Committee in a conference call on Friday, February 5, 2021 with input from their colleagues.
 
In regular dialogue with the hotel they do not believe the restrictions on gatherings will be relaxed by mid-May to the point of being able to host an in-person meeting the size of our state convention. In addition, the health and well being of our Lions is always the top priority. I will note that the hotel has been very gracious in working through this with us as they have several other times this past year as we have now cancelled 3 other events with them in addition to this one due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
 
We will now pivot and begin planning our first virtual convention. We still expect this to be a fun and successful event!! We need to conduct the business of the Lions of Illinois as there will be 4 resolutions that need to be voted on, an international guest to hear from, and several other things to be accomplished. More details will be sent out as they are firmed up and it will take some time to figure it all out.
 
I have also spoken with Lion Trish Fisher, the Executive Director of the Lions of Illinois Foundation, to inform her about this development. The LIF team will be determining how to best handle the Sight and Sound Sweepstakes and other LIF business. Look for more information when it becomes available.
 
We will also work with the incoming council of governors to make arrangements for them to move forward with their selections of state chair positions for next year.
 
I want to thank you all for everything you are doing to serve your communities during these challenging times. We will get through this and come out of it stronger than ever - better days are ahead!!
 
Please stay tuned for more information about our convention as it becomes available. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me.
 
Thank you.
 
MD-1 Council Chairperson Joe Vinyard

We Serve (Or Do We In This Scary Time?)
Mar-26-2020
We Serve (Or Do We In This Scary Time?)
---------------------------------------------------------
Reprinted from Lion Larry McGuire
---------------------------------------------------------
 
 
Lions and Lioness,
 
Presently we live in a scary time. No one really wants to be in a crowded place. Healthcare facilities have limited visitors. Even funerals are being restricted.
 
But still, as Lions, We Serve. Or do we?
 
How can We Serve in this scary time?
 
In reading today's paper I saw a list of ways we can serve and still be relatively safe. We can:
Donate activity games/puzzles to human service center's living facilities,
Sew face masks for healthcare employees, developmental disability facility employees, and first responders,
Wellbeing calls to senior citizens in our communities,
Help pay for senior citizens meals,
Record you reading for those with vision loss,
Donate meals,
Donate to your local food pantry,
Volunteer at your local food pantry, or
Donate food and supplies to your local humane society.
 
These are just some ideas of how we can continue to fulfill our motto, We Serve.
 
Perhaps these suggestions may spark an idea for your club that I have not listed, if so, share.
 
This email is going out to a limited number of Lions Club members, mostly to club presidents. You can still contact your club members via telephone, email or Facebook.
 
Yours In Service,
Lion Larry McGuire,
District 1-CS Leadership Chair

** District 1-BK Convention Postponed **
Mar-17-2020

Fellow Lions,

Due to the current worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, we will be following the CDC and Illinois Department of Public Health recommendations and cancelling the District 1-BK convention on April 17-18. I have made this decision in the best interest of your health and safety. Given that a significant portion of our membership are in the high risk category I feel this is the best course of action.

I will continue to monitor the situation before deciding on another date and location. As you know the situation is fluid and new information comes out each day. We are required to hold elections for our officers and I will work with the leadership team in 1-BK to determine how to best proceed. I have also consulted with ID Bob Block to get his input. I ask for your patience as we work through this situation.

The Holiday Inn will be cancelling any room reservations that have been made in conjunction with the convention. As for prepaid registrations and meal packages, please allow us a little time to work out the details on the best process of refunding everyone's money.

I want to thank the convention committee for all of the hard work they have put into planning this event. I know this is disappointing news, but everyone's health and well-being is the top priority.


Thank you.

DG Joe Vinyard

1BK 2019 Convention Info and Registration Materials

“Let’s Go Crusin’ to the Hop!”

District 1-BK Lions and Leos,
Our 5th Annual BK Convention is fast approaching. Mark your calendars for the dates of April 12th and April 13th, 2019. This convention will be held at the Bolingbrook Holiday Inn & Suites, 205 Remington Boulevard, Bolingbrook, Illinois. Registration is $10.00 for Lion members. Non-Lion guests, Leos, and “First Timers” are FREE. Registration fee includes a sundae bar Friday night “At the Hop”.
Realizing the difficult economic times, the convention committee was able to negotiate room rates down to $99.00 per night for single or double occupancy. Meal costs have been kept as low as possible. We will have an All-American buffet lunch for $25.00. Lunch consists of hamburgers, hot dogs, potato chips, cheese macaroni salad, a house salad, and cookies. Dinner will cost $34.00 for past primavera, $36.00 for bruschetta chicken breast, or $38.00 for roast sirloin of beef. Dinners include soup and salad, potato, rolls and butter, coffee or tea, and dessert.
It is time for all clubs to submit their ads and bragging rights for the convention program book. The costs for the ads are $25.00 for 1/4 page/business cards, $50.00 for a half page and $75.00 for the full page. Clubs are encouraged to solicit ads from local business as well as club members. This is one chance for you to advertise your business with no fine from the “Tail Twister” as well as help pay for the cost of the convention book’s printing. The deadline for ads is March 15th. Ads should be sent to PDG Bird Combs, pdgbird1@mtco.com, in either PDF or JPEG format with PDF being the preferred method.
We will once again be having a Silent Auction this year and it will open on Friday night when “Sock Hop” is going on in the adjacent room. We are requesting donations to the Silent Auction from all clubs and individuals who want to donate. Cash donations are also welcome. Please contact Lion Irene Leopold to let her know what you will be donating. She can be reached at 815-483-3715 or via e-mail at ileopold59@gmail.com.
At this time we have two Hospitality rooms available for clubs interested in hosting a room. This is a great opportunity to meet Lions from across the District. To secure a hospitality room, you must contact convention chairperson Lion Charlie Siefert at 630-759-5179 or via e-mail at csiefert@ameritech.net. ALL hospitality rooms will be on the first floor again this year.

On Saturday we will have some informative and exciting sessions on Lionism during the morning time frame. Following lunch, a Celebration of Service will precede the Cabinet Meeting on April 13th. I need all the names of deceased club members sent to me by April 1st so we don’t miss any of our departed Lions during the Celebration.
I will do everything I can to keep the Cabinet Meeting and Elections as short as possible. We will be voting on one proposed change to our Constitution and By-Laws.
Clubs are encouraged to bring their banners for the Parade of Club banners. Clubs can also bring “brag” boards for display in a “Walk of Fame” that will be on display over the weekend. There will be some special awards as well as an informative presentation by our guest speaker, ID Ardie Klemish, during Saturday’s events.
I encourage you to make a pledge to yourself to display your commitment to “Going Beyond the Horizon” in person in 2019 at our District Convention.
Yours in Lionism,

Lori
Lion Lori Linn
District Governor
