Often considered the most important meeting for club officers, the District Governor’s Advisory Committee meeting, or zone meeting, gives club presidents, club first vice presidents, secretaries, membership and services chairs the chance to learn about the programs and initiatives of the district, and LCI.

However, by far the most valuable element of these meetings is the opportunity for these key leaders to simply exchange ideas and challenges with other club officers.
Beginning this Saturday September the 5th, with Zone 4, these meetings generally focus on the planning and implementation of service projects, club management, membership growth and leadership development.

While the main objective is to provide club officers a forum for discussion, the meeting also provides the zone chairperson the opportunity to gather recommendations that can be shared with the District Governorโ€™s Team.

The District Governorโ€™s Advisory Committee is chaired by the zone chairperson and includes all club presidents, club first vice presidents and club secretaries within the zone.

The committee meets at least three times annually as outlined in the District Constitution and By-Laws. Some areas host a fourth meeting, which is optional, to celebrate the successes of the year and/or introduce incoming club officers to the concept of zone meetings.

The committeeโ€™s responsibilities are to:
1.Ensure that every club is operating effectively, following the International Constitution and By-Laws (LA-1) and policies, and meeting the needs of its members.

  1. Ensure that clubs provide meaningful service, inspire membership growth and leadership development.
  2. Promote the programs offered by the district, and LCI.
  3. Ensure that each club installs club officers, inducts new members and
    recognizes member achievements in a way that is meaningful.
  4. Encourage clubs to participate in district, and international
    conventions.
  5. Promote inter-club meetings and encourage clubs to attend charter nights and other district events.
    You are welcomed to attend any of these meetings coming up even if they are outside your zone.
