Lions Clubs are an essential part of the fabric of every Australian community, and our clubs are lucky to have the support of their Districts as well as a strong, national support structure – the Multiple District.
Two key assets to our organisation are strong legal, constitutional and policy advice, and a well-developed and cost-effective insurance program.
These portfolios are led by skilled, professional and highly committed Lions, our Legal Officer David Skinner OAM and our insurance consultant, Bob Korotcoff OAM.
This webinar will provide an insight into the roles of these officers and their commentary on the key issues facing our Association going into the future.
It is an essential webinar for practicing lawyers and insurance professionals within our Association, as well as others Lions with a strong interest in this area.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
