Lions want meetings. But not meetings that are boring or unproductive or lack younger members. Otherwise, they may choose to be former Lions. These findings come from Project Refresh, an LCI survey that assessed attitudes of Lions, former Lions and non-Lions to help guide membership strategies. Nearly 8,000 Lions in 134 nations responded to the LCI survey. The LION presented the survey results in the October 2012, November 2012 and January 2013 issues. Here we take another look at the findings related to meetings. What should Lions do with these results? Our three stories on Project Refresh (available at www.lion magazine.org) offered plenty of suggestions. Also continue to read the LION, especially the Recruiting Members and Club Improvement department pieces, for practical ideas and advice on strengthening your club. Regarding the charts on these pages, note that “gold clubs” refer to clubs that have highly satisfied members and are stable or growing. In North America, 27 percent of clubs are gold clubs. “Blue clubs” refer to clubs that showed either member dissatisfaction or declining growth. In North America, 63 percent of the clubs are blue clubs. Also note that Constitutional Area 1 is the United States and its Affiliates, Bermuda and the Bahamas. Constitutional Area II is Canada. Constitutional Area 3 is South America, Central America, Mexico and the Islands of the Caribbean Sea. Constitutional Area IV is Europe. Constitutional Area V is the Orient and Southeast Asia. Constitutional Area VI is India, South Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Constitutional Area VII is Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and the South Pacific Islands.
