The Convention was held over 4 days in April and provided a once a year opportunity to hear keynote speakers and to attend briefing sessions about Lions Clubs programs.
We hope you enjoyed and took pride in listening to our youth as you attended the National Youth of The Year finals, which were held on Saturday Afternoon. These are the final stage of the quest, after several hundred youth have taken part through the country at club, region, district & state levels. On Sunday afternoon was the National Leo of The Year contest.
Lions Club members who attended in the capacity of representing their Lions Club as voting delegates, also had the opportunity to participate in the governance process, of voting on resolutions affecting the Australian and PNG region.

Its Canberra’s Centenary!!!
In 2013, Canberra marks 100 years since the naming of Canberra, our national capital and home of the Australian story. Canberra has a connection to every Australian that no other city in the country does. The Centenary of Canberra offers an ideal opportunity for all Australians to get closer to Canberra, both the city itself and its national and symbolic roles. It is a great time to revisit and re-imagine our national capital—the city that tells the story of our country’s freedom, spirit, achievements and aspirations. As part of the centenary celebrations, there is a year-long program covering sport, science, arts, community, architecture, education, environment, diverse cultures, major events, touring exhibitions and performances.
