MD4 NAMI Champion Statement

NAMI is an opportunity for each of us, as Lions, to play a role in growing our association and leading us to the future. It’s an opportunity to reverse the decline in our membership.

NAMI gives us the tools to do this by emphasizing teamwork, goal setting, planning by rejuvenating our districts with new clubs, re-energizing  and revitalizing existing clubs with new members, and encouraging our members to engage in more meaningful service, fellowship and fun. And it all starts with clubs where we will improve the overall membership experience.

NAMI is our opportunity to lead our legacy into the future.
