New Voices Beyond the Horizon Team

Exciting news!

DG Geila was looking forward to a well earned rest when she finishes her term as District Governor for 410A on 30 June 2018 – but this is not the case!

It is with pleasure that we announce that she has been selected to serve as a Constitutional Area Speaker on the newly formed  New Voices Beyond the Horizon Team. This team consists of only 32 members around the world under PID Sangeeta’s leadership.

With effect from 01 July 2018 DG Geila (IPDG Geila!)  will work extremely closely with the Council Chairman Viv Grater, Multiple District Council, District Governors, DG Teams, 2019 – 2020 CC Elect Jacqui Hocking and her Shadow Council, as well as the Global Action Team Area Leaders, GLT Paula Lang, GST Carl van Blerk and GMT Rashmi Kooverjee.

The New Voices Initiative celebrates the contributions made by women as Lions Clubs International welcomes its first female International President. This initiative promotes gender parity by focusing on increasing the number of women in Lions clubs, as well as closing the gap between men and women in leadership positions. This will be done by facilitating seminars and/or workshops at the District and MD Conventions.

It is indeed an honour for DG Geila to be selected to serve this Team which we all know she will put her heart and soul into.  Well done!

MD 410 Hippie Convention 2018

As DG Geila has repeatedly posted on our Facebook pages recently, the success of the MD 410 Hippie Convention at the Wilderness Hotel from 27 – 29 April 2018 has left her a “ridiculously proud DG!”

Well done to all the Clubs from District 410A who travelled to be a part of the awesome weekend and to meet up with the rest of the Lions family.  The photos received are far too many to post on the website but they are on Facebook and I didn’t see any unsmiling faces!

Well done also to DG Tillie Nel who chaired the committee to arrange the Convention which I’m sure was no sweat at all!!

One of the most important aspects of the Convention was the election of District 410A’s future leadership who will lead the District through 2018 – 2019 in true style.

Our new District 410A District Governor Elect is Rocky Wright, (Lions Club of Tableview),  our 1st District Governor Elect, Bennie Smith, (Lions Club of Wellington),  and 2nd District Governor Elect Jose Borges (Lions Club of Malmesbury).

We wish them all the very best for a successful year ahead!
