Annual Club Membership Dues

Hello Lions!  

 

With the arrival of January, it means it's time to pay our annual club dues.  As a reminder, our dues are $100 for the year if paid in two $50 increments (January and July), or a discounted amount of $95 if paid fully in January.

 

As you are probably aware, not all of these funds stay with our club. $42 of your $100 per year goes to Lions International to support their worldwide programs and disaster relief.  $16 per year goes to the Lions at the

state and district level to support their many programs. That leaves $42 per member to support our club functions.  All monies our club raises from the public must be spent on public programs.  So administrative

costs for the club (website hosting, postage & P.O Box rental, internal awards, meals for dinner speakers, etc) are pulled from this $42 per member.

 

You can pay your first $50 installment here - or your entire $95 for the year. Alternatively, checks may be sent to:

 

North Aurora Lions Club

P.O. Box 35

North Aurora, IL  60542

 

Special Notes for families.  If two or more Lion family members live together under the same roof, the additional family members beyond the initial member are only required to pay half of the Lions International portion of the dues (or half of the $42, which is $21).  All other components of our clubs dues are the

same for all family members.  For example, a family of two would owe:

 

Member 1:  $42 Lions International + $16 State/Dist + $42 Local Club = $100

Member 2:  $21 Lions International + $16 State/Dist + $42 Local Club = $79

 

Therefore, this family of two would owe $179 for 2024.  This may be paid in two installments of $89.50, the first installment being due now.  Or a single discounted payment $174.

Mission

To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.

History

In 1917, Melvin Jones, a 38-year-old Chicago business leader, told members of his local business club they should reach beyond business issues and address the betterment of their communities and the world. Jones' group, the Business Circle of Chicago, agreed.

After contacting similar groups around the United States, an organizational meeting was held on June 7, 1917, in Chicago, Illinois, USA. The new group took the name of one of the invited groups, the "Association of Lions Clubs," and a national convention was held in Dallas, Texas, USA in October of that year. A constitution, by-laws, objects and a code of ethics were approved.

Within three years, Lions became an international organization. Since then, we've earned high marks for both integrity and transparency. We're a well-run organization with a steady vision, a clear mission, and a long – and proud – history.
