Upcoming Training Dates:


FDI (Faculty Development Institute) September 14th to 16th  2019 Auckland

The Faculty Development Institute is a three-day institute that serves to develop and expand the number of skilled Lions faculty available for use in training at the club, district, and multiple district levels.  The curriculum is designed to enhance training delivery skills and training techniques that will increase the quality of training and overall effectiveness of Lions leadership development programs. 

Starting in 2018-2019 the Faculty Development Institute’s focus has changed to emphasize training delivery skills more and no longer includes sessions on curriculum development. Lions who complete the FDI are expected to be able to effectively deliver training sessions with provided materials. They should not be expected to create their own training materials


ALLI (Advanced Lions Leadership Institute) November 2nd to 4th 2019 Christchurch

Advanced Lions Leadership Institutes focus on building the skills of Lions leaders to prepare them for leadership responsibilities at zone, region and district levels.  Qualified candidates are Lions that have completed a successful term as club president, but have not yet attained the position of First Vice District Governor.
