A total of 58 individuals joined the first Regional Lion’s Leadership Institute on Saipan last May 18 and 19 at the Fiesta Resort & Spa Saipan.
The two-day training included leadership fundamentals, teamwork, diversity, goal setting, time management, public speaking, personal mission statement, member motivation, and local issues and opportunities, among others.
The training concluded with a graduation ceremony complete with pins and certifications for the members as well as a dinner for the club members.
Guam Lions facilitated the training, headed by Lion’s district governor Danny Cruz.
District 204, Region 2 is composed of six clubs—the Saipan Fil-Am Lions Club, Saipan Unity LC, Saipan Marianas LC, Saipan Alliance LC, Saipan Natibu LC, and Saipan Centennial LC.
“Each club is autonomous, they can create their own projects, community services, and fundraising but the six clubs can work as one as Region 2,” the organization noted in a statement.
“We need this kind of training, the things that we learned are all applicable in our daily lives. …Being a Lion member, it gives us more understanding of ‘Lionism’ and volunteerism,” the organization stated.
