Lions Clubs International Convention – register now

Lions Clubs International Convention – register now


Due to the continuing concerns about the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Lions Clubs International Board of Directors voted to transition the 2021 Montreal Lions Clubs International Convention to a virtual event that will be delivered totally online. This decision was made with the health and safety of our Lions, staff, and vendors in mind as limiting international travel and large gatherings is key to global containment strategies.

Here are some important details about the 2021 convention:

  • Our 2021 convention will be a virtual event that’s open to all Lions and Leos around the world.
  • Registration is now open. The registration fee will be US$50 until 31 March 2021, then US$75 beginning 1 April 2021. The registration fee for Leos will be US$30 regardless of the date. The Convention is currently scheduled for 25-29 June 2021.
  • Executive officer and international director elections will be conducted electronically, and voting procedures will be forthcoming.
  • Convention updates and details will be posted here at https://lcicon.lionsclubs.org/ as they become available.

LCICon 2021

 
Keynote Speaker: Malala Yousafzai  on Monday, 28 June 2021
About Malala Yousafzai

There are not many young women who have survived an assassination attempt or become the youngest Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. Even with all of her accomplishments, Malala does not consider herself extraordinary.

Inspired by her father’s activism, Malala began her campaign for girls’ education at age 11 with her anonymous blog for the BBC, Diary of a Pakistani Schoolgirl, about life under the Taliban. Malala soon began advocating publicly for girls’ education. She would join her father on his visits to neighboring villages to recruit for the school. While he spoke to the men, she would speak to the women. Their campaign was the subject of a New York Times short documentary in 2009.

Malala soon began attracting international media attention and receiving awards. Due to her increased prominence, at age 15 she was attacked by the Taliban for speaking out. Malala recovered in the United Kingdom and has continued her fight for girls ever since.

In 2013, she co-founded Malala Fund with her father, Ziauddin. A year later, at the age of 17, Malala received the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of her efforts to see every girl complete 12 years of free, safe, quality education. Malala is currently completing her undergraduate degree at Oxford University, with a focus on philosophy, politics, and economics.

Malala remains a leading force in the fight against the barriers—like poverty, war, and gender discrimination—keeping more than 130 million girls out of school around the world.
