Another way you can grow your leadership skills is by developing your communication skills as a member of the Lions Faculty. These are the Lions that bring about change by providing training via workshops and webinars to Lions around the world. The Faculty Development Institute (FDI) is the first step towards becoming a facilitator and taking part in the growth and change that makes Lions so exciting.
You must have some training experience, such as presenting at a Mid-Year Leadership Conference (remember to record your presentation), and have an interest in further developing your skills. It is important to note that this program is not for experienced professional presenters or teachers, they need to attend the Lions Certified Instructor (LCIP) program which is a separate program for those who are more experienced professional presenters.
This year FDI will take place on January 19-21, 2019 in Reno, Nevada. If you would like to learn more, follow this link. If you chose to apply, you must be approved by your District Governor, the Multiple District GLT Coordinator, and your Council Chairperson.
