Every club needs members in order to achieve its service goals. To help clubs recruit new members,
LCI offers several membership options to community members who want to volunteer and serve their communities as Lions.
In addition to regular membership, LCI offers special membership programs for families, college students, former Leos
and young adults.
This is our “standard” membership. Regular membership is for community members interested in volunteering, serving
the community and making our world a better place. Regular members pay an entrance fee (US$35) and full international
dues (US$43). Additional district, multiple-district and club dues apply.
The Family Membership Program provides families with the opportunity to receive a special dues discount when they join
a Lions club together. The first family member (head of household) pays full international dues (US$43), and up to four
additional family members pay only half the international dues (US$21.50). All family members pay the one-time entrance
The Family Membership Program is open to family members who are (1) eligible for Lions membership, (2) currently in
or joining the same club, and (3) living in the same household and related by birth, marriage or other legal relationship.
To receive the family membership dues rate, complete the Family Unit Certification Form and submit it with the MMR,
or complete the certification on MyLCI. When chartering a club, complete the certification on the Report of Charter
Active membership is the “typical” category of Lions membership. Active members receive all benefits, and must meet all
requirements, of Lions membership.
An associate member has active membership in one Lions club and associate membership in a second club in their
community of residence or employment.
