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.

Due to the expected high demand, performance times will be allotted by LCI.  Please complete the Performance Stage application and return it to convention@lionsclubs.org.  

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.

Due to the expected high demand, session times will be allotted by LCI.  Please complete the Lions Campfire Session / Lions Den application and return it to convention@lionsclubs.org.  

Apply for these great convention opportunities today!
