Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is the dress code during the Convention Business Session?
A. District Officers tend to wear jacket and tie/scarf with smart slacks/skirt but many just wear casual clothing.

Q. How will I know what is going on?
A. You will receive a delegate bag on registration that is full of useful information including a 'map' to guide you to the function rooms. We plan to have buddies to help you get the most out of Convention - you'll make a lot of new buddies whilst there, too!

Q. What will I get out of the weekend?
A. Apart from the fun and friendship of meeting with other Lions, there will be a packed programme of presentations, including a New Lions Orientation session which will be very useful to newer Lions.

Q. Why should I go, my club doesn't attend Convention?
A. Be the first! Come along and if you cannot persuade others to come, go back and tell them what they missed!

Q. I don't like Fancy Dress! Must I dress up?
A. No, dress is optional on the Friday Host Night. The theme is "The 70s", which is wide open to interpretation so if you do decide to 'dress-up' you could wear anything from your mini skirt to your flares!

Q. Is there a dress code for the Banquet and Ball?
A. Yes, Black Tie and ladies - let's see you sparkle!

Q. Why do you ask if this is my first Convention?
A. The District Governor welcomes all "First Timers" and their partners to a drinks reception prior to the Banquet & Ball. Your name badge will identify you, and the Host Committee will make every effort to ensure that you have a great Convention.
