2012 USA/Canada Lions Leadership Forum Host Committee Tampa Bay, Florida

Dear Club President, Florida has an opportunity to show off our Multiple District to the Lions of the USA and Canada at the Lions Invasion of Tampa Bay to be held in Tampa September 13th through 15th 2012. The 36th Annual USA/Canada Lions Leadership Forum promises to be the one all future forums will be modeled after. As hosts, we will be responsible for working with the Planning Committee on all aspects of planning the Forum; then during the Forum we will provide manpower of between 300 and 400 volunteers to ensure that attendees feel welcome and have a great experience. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to shine in the eyes of the Lions, Lioness, and Leo's outside of Florida and the Bahamas and raise some money to support our statewide projects. The Host Committee is already in place and holding organizational and sub-committee meetings with plans for a number of fundraisers including: a series of collector pins (the first will be ready for sale early 2011) a collector's edition medallion in the shape of a Spanish Doubloon a series of raffles that will feature items unique to Florida and the Bahamas a scale model of a 18th century pirate ship donated by 1st VDG Doris Turlo

With the Forum less than 2 years away we are in need of your help. Not only do we need volunteers before, during and after the forum but we are also in need of other items as well. Contact PCC Jackie Cameron or DG John Carbaugh for a list of items on our wish list. We will also need seed money. We don't expect to see any revenue from the raffles until the Forum and from pin sales until late in the year. In the meantime, the Host Committee will incur expenses that cannot be deferred. We are looking to raise up to $40,000 to help defray Host Committee expenses. We are asking clubs to make donations of $25 - $50 - $100 or more that will be used for this purpose with any leftover funds being donated back to Multiple District projects. Donations should be made out to and sent to: 2012 USA/Canada Forum Host Committee c/o PDG Paul Nash, Treasurer 19124 Grenelefe Court North Fort Myers, FL 33903 For more information about the Lions Invasion of Tampa Bay check out our website at If you have any questions about the Forum don't hesitate to contact PCC Jackie at [email protected] or DG John at [email protected] Thanks in advance for your support.

The Forum's mission is to develop leaders, motivate and educate attendees, provide an open exchange of ideas, and support programs and goals of Lions Clubs International.
