The Global Membership Team (GMT) provides a global structure for membership development which is continuous, focused, and integrated. Collaborating with the Global Leadership Team, the GMT works in an interdependent manner with all Lions in the association for the benefit and success of the club. Members of the GMT and GLT work together to develop membership through service and engagement and also to support present Lions leaders and identify future leaders. The two teams operate as parallel structures and are connected and coordinated at the international level by an executive council The GMT/GLT executive council is led by the LCI international president, with the international first and second vice presidents overseeing and providing guidance to the GMT and GLT respectively. Both the GMT and GLT are further supported by two international coordinators and a joint operations committee composed of the chairpersons of the Membership Development Committee, the Leadership Committee and the District and Club Service Committee, as well as a team of appointed constitutional area leaders.
Membership is critical to our association. Members join to serve. They remain Lions because of the service being conducted, the friendships that have developed and the impact they have made in people’s lives. The Global Membership Team (GMT) will support membership development at the club level by recruiting new members and promoting positive membership experiences. At the district level, the GMT will start clubs in new areas to further increase our service impact. More members = more hands for service.
