Cyber Lions Clubs – What are they and are they real? by Rodney Law | Apr 23, 2013 | Cyber Lions, Social Media | 1 comment With the continuing growth and access to the Internet people are feeling more social than ever. People are using this medium as a new way in which to serve the community. Cyber Lions clubs are Lions Clubs that conduct the majority of their business and meetings online. The online meetings have the advantage of eliminating the need to travel to attend meetings, members can even be in different cities and still participate in meetings. There is still the opportunity to meet face to face and to carry out community projects or it can be used just for personal interaction between members. Cyber clubs can offer members more flexibility to attend regular meetings and provide more productivity, just online with the use of the Internet. Many of us now find work and family commitments are take up more and more of our time and we are having to choose between these and serving the community. Clubs can also set up a cyber branch within their club with the intent to retain those members who could be lost due to time commitments or extended travel. Cyber Lions Clubs are real clubs, they are the same as traditional clubs, they follow all the same rules and all the same responsibilities as any other club. To charter a club you require the same minimum 20 members and the sponsorship of a club or district cabinet and the approval of the District Governor and pay the relevant fees. One difference is that 75% of charter members must live or work within the district of which the club is chartered.
