Membership

New members are essential to any organisation. They bring new ideas, new interest and new opportunities for friendship as well as helping to share the work and enable clubs to maintain and increase their activities.

If you think joining a Lions Club might be for you, contact your local club to find out more. If you like what you see and find that you fit in with the way the club works, you will be invited to join.

Lions Clubs International

The International Association of Lions Clubs is non sectarian and non political. When it was formed, it was a male organisation but, since 1987, membership has also been open to ladies. The principle that membership is by invitation applies to all.

Many clubs now have mixed membership, some from when they started, others through natural evolution; other clubs have preferred to retain their existing character and remain with an all male membership for the time being.

Local Clubs

The Lions Club of Billericay was formed in 1979 as a male club and membership has remained male since. Billericay sponsored a new club in Wickford  which is a mixed club and recently merged with Basildon. South Woodham Ferrers is another nearby mixed club. Chelmsford and Brentwood have remained all male clubs although Chelmsford has an associated Lioness club.
