"To All Lions of District 33 Y. Each year a new governor comes into office with a cabinet secretary treasurer by his/her side. At times the position is separated into two positions: a cabinet secretary, CS, and a cabinet treasurer, CT. Quite often both positions will be combined into one position, CST. Discovering and asking someone to take on the position is an extremely important task. None of the business of the district can take place without this unique position. Therefore; considering the qualifications and skills of who will fill this position is paramount. I know it's a little early, but I would like to try a different approach than going to person by person asking people I feel are qualified, to announcing the position to the district at large. If all goes as planned and has been verified by the nominations committee, I will be District Governor beginning July 2021. I will have the honor of following VDG Jack Walsh who will be governor beginning July 2020.
What I am proposing is to have anyone in the district who has a desire or interest in becoming my CS, CT or CST for one year, to tell me and we will set up a time to talk. But before you run for the phone, email or text, there are a few requirements.
Number 1. You must want to have fun!
Number 2. You must be computer savvy and enjoy the nerdy details of being a secretary or a treasurer. Being able to use a computer and actually enjoy it is probably my biggest need. If you don't like computers, thank you, but do not apply.
Number 3. You must be able to drive at night and be a good driver.
Number 4. You must like people because you will be meeting loads of them.
Number 5. You must be able to put up with me and my foibles. I think I'm easy to get along with, but others may differ. Ask around.
Attached you will find a file or general idea of what duties you'd have. Www.lionsclubs.org has everything you need to know as well. Well, there you have it. I can't wait to hear from you!
Lions of District 33Y,
Please see the following announcement from Lions International that some of you may have seen:
Dear Lion Leader,
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has impacted the work of Lions around the world. In many cases, it has also created financial hardships for our Lions and the people for whom we care.
To support the incredible men and women serving with us, the International Board of Directors has passed a resolution to help our clubs.
Here is an overview of the resolution approved by the Board of Directors:
Flexible payments – No clubs will be suspended or cancelled through December 31, 2020 for late payment of dues.
Charter and entrance fees waiver – We have waived all charter and entrance fees from July 1 – December 31, 2020.
These measures will help Lions facing financial hardships, and give our clubs hope, encouragement, and an opportunity to start the new Lion year with renewed energy and optimism.
This may be a time of great need, but we will overcome this together. For more than a century, Lions have taken on the greatest challenges facing humanity. That is who we are, and what we do.
So let us stand together. And let us remember just how important we are to our communities and the world.
Dr. Jung-Yul Choi
