Sponsorships Available for 2nd USA/Canada Leo Leadership Forum – APPLY NOW


I have GREAT NEWS. The 2017-2019 Council of Governors has chosen to offer four $750 sponsorships for Leos interested in attending the 2nd USA/Canada Leo Leadership Forum which will take place August 1st thru 5th, 2018 in Westchester, New York. The sponsorships will cover the registration fee, hotel room and four days of meals for participating Leos. The sponsorship does not cover airfare to and from New York, but it is hoped that the Districts and/or sponsoring Lions clubs of the Leos selected to receive the sponsorships may be able to assist with the cost of air travel. Ground transportation from JFK airport of La Guardia airport to the Forum will be provided.

The sponsorships are for Leos only and not offered to advisors or chaperones. One sponsorship will be awarded to a Leo from each Area within Multiple District 4. (In case you need a refresher, Area 1 includes Districts 4-C1, 4-C5 and 4-A1; Area 2 includes Districts 4-C2, 4-C3, 4-C4 and 4-C6; Area 3 includes Districts 4-A2, 4-A3, 4-L1 and 4-L3; and Area 4 includes Districts 4-L2, 4-L4, 4-L5 and 4-L6.)

If you have Leos who are interested the time to act is now.

Registrations are due no later than June 25th. Registration forms for Leos and Lions are attached. Leos who wish to apply for the sponsorships must submit an electronic copy of the completed three-page Leo Registration Application (which must be signed by a parent or guardian in the appropriate spaces on page 2) along with a brief statement highlighting their qualifications and why they wish to attend the Forum to my attention via e-mail at mhunter@sdsengineering.com no later than 10:00 am on Friday, June 22nd. The applications will be reviewed by the Youth Outreach Committee on Friday afternoon and sponsorship recipients will be selected. Notification will be made to all sponsorship applications as soon as the selections have been made.

This is a wonderful opportunity for four of our Leos to participate in an experience that will be of value to them as Leos and future Lions (hopefully) as well as in their college and career paths. Please share this information with any Leos, advisors or others who may have an interest. If you have any questions or need further information, please do not hesitate to contact me at (530) 921-3600 or via e-mail at the address shown above. Thank you for your interest. I hope you have a marvelous Monday and a wonderful week.
