The convention registration badge is required for admission to all convention sessions, and seminars.  Delegate/alternate forms are due no later than April 1, 2017. Delegate/alternate forms have been distributed to all Club Secretaries indicating the appropriate number of Delegates and alternates the Club is entitled to.  Numbers are based on membership reports obtained through Lions Club International, and reflect the number of members enrolled in the club for at least one year and a day.  Any decline in club membership after March 1st, 2017 will result in a decrease in Delegate numbers.  These changes will be made by the Certification Committee.
