Looking for an opportunity to serve while in Chicago?
New for LCI Chicago Convention! Lions and Leos from around the world are coming together to volunteer at large-scale projects. Registration is now open for hands-on opportunities, such as urban farm gardening, beach and river clean-ups, hygiene kit assembly, and foodbank packing sessions. Pre-registration along with a US$25 non-refundable payment is required and space is limited.
Lions Performance Stage
Calling all talented Lions! A special Lions Performance Stage will be placed inside the exhibit hall where you will have the opportunity to perform up to 45-minutes representing your club and district to a global audience at the Chicago convention. From singers, musicians, dancers, and more – this is your special opportunity to entertain, have fun, and share your culture with your fellow Lions.
Lions Campfire Sessions / Lions Den
Did your club or district do a unique service project? Did you discover a new way to attract members to your club? Have you revamped your club or district’s meetings? Do you have expertise in an area that you’d like to share with your fellow Lions? If you’ve answered “Yes” to any of these questions then you should apply to present at one of the Lions Campfire Sessions / Lions Den areas at the Chicago convention. We will have two designated areas inside the exhibit hall where informal discussions up to 30-minutes in length regarding topics of interest plus 15-minutes for questions and answers will be available to convention attendees. This is a great opportunity to share and learn from others.
Apply for these great convention opportunities today!
IMPORTANT: Please note that we expect to receive more applications than available time slots. All applications will be reviewed by a committee for selection. Applications need to be received by January 31 with the selected performers and speakers notified by mid-March.
