Topics:

  1. Petition to change District Officer Election rules

    1. Problem: Currently, only Leo Club Presidents are allowed to run for the District President and Vice President positions. However, many school-based Leo Clubs have officer roles based on seniority, and many club presidents are seniors who will graduate. Thus, the current rule unfairly restricts members from many school-based clubs from holding the District President and VP positions.

    2. Goal: To change the rule to allow both Leo Club Presidents and Vice Presidents to run for the District President and Vice President positions

    3. Steps

      1. Create poll to send out to Leo Clubs to determine interest

      2. Contact Lion Michael Chan and Lion Kevin Guess for advice & petition procedures

      3. Possibilities: Start a pilot program, Change rule for multiple districts, new clause, etc.
