ROLES OF THE OFFICERS AND BOARD OF DIRECTORS:
A Lions club is governed by a Board of Directors, normally consisting of a president as chief executive officer, the immediate past president, three vice presidents, a secretary, a treasurer, Lion tamers, tail-twisters, four or more directors, a membership director. Officers are elected annually for a term coinciding with the association’s fiscal year (July 1-June 30). Directors are elected for two-year terms. Meetings of the board are usually held once each month.
The president serves as the club’s chief executive officer and presides at all meetings of the club and the board of directors. The president issues the call for regular and special meetings in accordance with the club’s by-laws or procedures, plans the agenda and ensures that the status of each committee activity is reported. It is also the responsibility of the president to see that regular elections are duly called, noticed and held. The president cooperates with, and is an active member of, the district governor’s advisory committee of the zone in which the club is located.
In the event that the president should be unable to perform the duties of office for any reason, the 1st vice president next in rank occupies the position and performs the duties with the same authority as the president. Each vice president, under the direction of the president, oversees the functioning of various committees of the club.
Immediate Past President:
The immediate past president, along with other past presidents, serves as an official greeter of members and their guests at club meetings and represents the club in welcoming new people into the community served by the club.
Under the supervision and direction of the president and board of directors, the secretary acts as a liaison officer between the club and both the district and International Headquarters. Responsibilities of the secretary include submitting reports, and maintaining club records.
The Treasurer is responsible for all club financial matters. Oversees the Bookkeeper.
The Lion Tamer serves as custodian of club property. Duties include being responsible for club property (such as flags, banners, gavels, passing out song books etc.), See that the badge boards are properly placed, and that the standard organization chart is displayed. They help with the distributing of materials at meetings. They are to assist the past presidents as the official greeters, to welcome all guests and see that places are provided for all.
Tail-Twisters shall maintain harmony, and encourage good feelings, life and enthusiasm in the meetings. They shall impose and collect the fines at the meetings (and shall use their best judgment when doing so). Much of the success of the meetings will depend upon their resourcefulness in promoting fellowship, fun and laughter, making the members forget, for a time at least, their business and any worries they may have.
The membership director serves as the chairman of the membership committee. Responsibilities of the membership director include development of membership growth programs, implementation of recruitment and preparation of orientation sessions.
