FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I become a Lion? You have to join a Lions Club to become a Lion— a member of the International Association of Lions Clubs. You can not just join Lions Clubs International; Lions Clubs International is an association of Lions clubs. Members of Lions clubs become members of Lions Clubs International when they are inducted into a Lions Club.
How do I join the Barnet Lions Club? Membership in the Barnet Lions Club, as with all Lions clubs, is by invitation. Membership is open to all men and women over the age of 18 who are willing to serve the needs of our community. You need to fill out an application for membership and pay the initiation fees and club dues. A member of the Club will ordinarily sponsor you, although Lions from other clubs can (and do) sponsor new members to the Barnet Lions Club (and Barnet Lions Club members sponsor new members to other Lions clubs as well). Your application for membership is submitted to the Club’s board of directors for approval. Once approved, you will be inducted into the club at a regular club meeting.
How much does it cost to join the Barnet Lions Club? Annual dues for the Barnet Lions Club is currently $75.00. Dues are charged for a fiscal year that runs from July 1 through June 30 (and members can pay dues in installments). When you first join the Club, Club dues are pro rated and there is a one–time entrance fee of $25.00. There are also discounts if you are less than 30 years old, are a student, or if you and one or more family members join the Club.
Do I have to pay dues to Lions Clubs International, too? No. You do not pay any dues other than the annual dues to the Barnet Lions Club. Portion of your membership fee will go towards the Lions International membership automatically.
What else do I have to pay to be a Barnet Lion? There are no assessments or charges you are required to pay to be a member of the Barnet Lions Club other than dues.
