Rameshsya Rasmadhuryam Dear Lions, Warm Greetings of the festive Season I would like to first pay a h e a r t f e l t homage to my guide and Well wisher late Lion P Roop Karan Reddy. In his demise I have lost an Elder brother, whose guide I would have definitely needed all through the year. However destiny snatched him from all of us. His dedicated services in establishing and making Ram Reddy Lions Hospital a monument of service is engraved in the History of Lions and shall remain so forever. The first major task of the year was to get District Directory in time. Lions have been telling us about past couple of years when we could not deliver it on time. However this year the Chief Editor Lion Ramesh Chandra Babu had worked hard on the District Directory and we could finally come out with the District Directory not just in time but also distribute it on the spot. It is a well organized and printed Directory and my compliments to Lion Ramesh Chandra Babu and his editorial team. Over 100 sewing machines donated at the hands of our International Directory Lion VV Krishna Reddy was the highlight of the evening that saw our District Cabinet Installed. I should thank all the Clubs that participated

Murthy Rahasyam Dear Lions, Lions Update is the only one medium which carries my thoughts to all the Lions of the District every alternate month. I wish that all the Lions must go through the entire Publication religiously. This will help them in updating their knowledge of Lionism. We need Lions who are well educated in our policies, Ideology, Rules and Procedures. A well informed Lion is always an Asset for any organization. As the Information kranti has taken over the entire world and we do depend more and more upon Information Technology, these days, it is pertinent that each Lions Club officer is well versed with the basic knowledge of computer and WMMR. Knowledge of uploading WMMR has become the basic required knowledge for Club President and Secretary. By logging into the net and the International website, you can get all the information about your Club Membership, Club

Billings and Club Reports including Activities Reports. Activities Reports has the opportunity to upload your Club Activities Pictures online for the entire world to see. The same reports can be downloaded and sent to the district, Zone and Region Chairpersons. Your activities can be shared globally and vice versa you can also navigate through the web to see what other Clubs in other parts of the world are doing. I wish that Each Club President and Secretary of the Club shall take to WMMR as a fish takes to water. Your’s in Service

organizing Musical event and Dandia Utsav. Each of the Club should have a Fund raising program that suits to its culture and environment. Few Clubs could join in a common event to share the Burden of organizing a major event. This could minimize the overheads and maximize the revenues.

As the year progresses, I hope the team of office bearers of each of the Club had settled firm in their saddles. Dear Club Leaders, please remember that this opportunity is with you only for few more months. If you want to make your own dreams come true this is the right time to initiate and implement your plans. I am sure the Club yearly plans must be in place by now. Being the Chairman of Global Leadership Team, I must advice all the Clubs to take active part in all the Leadership No Plans succeed on their own, unless backed by a development programs orgaised by our GMT Team determined effort to succeed. Also it is necessary that lead by Ln Mohan Doss well supported by GMT team the entire strength of the Club ( it’s Members) be invoked led by Lion MKR Purohit. We are committed to develop and involved. That is the real essence of leadership. future leadership in the District. Should any Club need any kind assistance from me, I am ready to help them I would appeal the Club Leadership to take up fundraising out in any respect. for implementation of their projects. Without enough funds, your dreams may remain dreams only. Clubs Lion Dr. Narasimha Reddy, mjf like Hyderabad and Petals have done fund raising through Second Vice District Governor

A TO Z ABOUT GMT & GLT PROGRAMME Lion Gangadhara Rao Multiple 324C GMT Coordinator

team with three to four members has to be formed by the D G teams.

Lions Clubs International has evolved the new concept of GMT & GLT program after careful consideration of newer concepts for achieving Significant, continuous and sustainable membership growth with a great emphasis on District Governors Teams and Global membership teams

THE GMT & GLT TEAMS AT EACH LEVEL HAVE TO WORK HAND IN GLOVE IN VERY CLOSE CO ORDINATION AND UNDERSTANDING TO ACHIEVE THE EXTRA ORDINARY RESULTS IN PROMOTING MEMBERSHIP AND LEADERSHIP.

The new concept was conceived and was started in the year 2008 when our International association has formed a pilot team for Global Membership growth with constitutional area leaders and international directors as members. The team work of this committee showed positive results regarding Membership growth with significant gains. This prompted the Lions Clubs International to appoint a special committee of International Board of directors in the year 2009-10 to recommend the detailed plan of implementing the Global membership strategies. The recommendations of this special committee were accepted by the Lions Clubs International and the decision to replace the MERL program by GMT program and parallelly creating the GLT Program on a similar basis and implement this from the Lionistic year 201112.Hence from this lionistic year 2011-12 MERL program has been deleted and replaced by GMT & GLT program. The aim of this initiative is to achieve * Continued membership growth * develop club excellence program * achieve better leadership development. TEAM STRUCTURE: International: The international president is the team leader for both GMT&GLT. First Vice president of the association will be the liason for co coordinating the GMT work and the second vice president looks after the GLT program. The team at the head quarters consists of International leaders appointed one each to guide the team one for GMT & one for GLT.The managers of the departments of membership,extention and leadership are the members of this high level committee. The international directors on these committees are also members of this team.

Working Modules for GMT & GLT program: In spite of the best efforts put in by Lions clubs International to reach the target of 1.5 million members we could not reach the goal. Rather day by day we are getting more ex-lions than the members in the organisation.The Global membership and leadership schedules are aimed in promoting cent percent retention and effective membership growth as it is a fact ---more members - more services. Steps for the working schedules: 1. Effective GMT & GLT teams have to be formed at the Lions District level by the DG teams with an undertaking that these lions extend their services for a period of three years (2011-2014).If their contribution is not up to the expectations, the Lions Clubs International can relieve them of their responsibilities after review of their work at the end of each Lionistic year. 2. The district GMT teams have to work in close co ordination with the Zone chairmen and club officers, workout quarterly targets for membership growth for each Lions Club and try to achieve them in specific time schedule. 3. Develop plans for achieving cent percent results in retaining members. 4. Identify the clubs where training is required for achieving club excellence. 5. Identify the areas for club extention in a time bound quarterly schedule. 6. Train sufficient number of certified guiding lions in each Lions District who have to be nominated as guiding lions for the new lions clubs and also week clubs by the District Governors. 7. Identify potential leaders and give them training for grooming them as effective lion leaders at various levels i,e. starting from the membership level, ZCs, RCs ,Cabinet members, and effective faculty work force in each district. 8. Initiate the process for converting ineffective clubs into excellent clubs.

Constitutional area and area leaders: Lion A.P.Singh past international director is our constitutional area leader for GMT and Lion Naresh Agarwal another past international director works as team leader for GLT for ISAAME constitutional area. LionM.Nagarajan PID and Lion Premnath PDG are the area leaders THE FIRST VICE DISTRICT GOVERNOR WILL BE THE CO for India and Srilanka for co coordinating the GMT & GLT work ORDINATING OFFICER FOR MEMBERSHIP AND THE SECOND VICE respectively.

KUDOS TO LION RAMESH CHANDRA BABU

My dear Ln. Ramesh, Just this morning I have received District Directory for the District 324 C2 for the year 2011-2012. In my lionistic career of about 47 years, the District Directory of your year is the best in all respects. The printing is very good, nicely bound and providing best information. I offer my salutation to your leadership which has percolated to the Chief Editor Lion P. Ramesh Chandra Babu and to all other responsible for this Directory. I am sure your sharp leadership will be seen further during the year. My complements to you and may God bless you. With Regards, Lion O P GOENKA, PDG Dist. 324C 6

He looses the sense of time He looses control over hi tongue and keeps on talking. Even if the person has nothing else to say he keeps repeating the same things over and again. He forgets what his assignment is and if asked to welcome goes on to thank every one, If asked to Introduce some one, keeps introducing himself rather than introducing the guest and keeps committing such silly mistakes. Even the latest Virus detector programs like MacAfee etc; have failed to find a solution to this virus. Do you have any program to control this virus? If so please send to the Chief Editor. The best one will be published in the Update with your names.
