Lions District 24-I Transition

Beginning July 1, 2018, District 24-B will merge with District 24-D to become Lions of Virginia District 24-I.  Lions Clubs International requires a district to have a minimum of 35 clubs and 1,275 members.  Lions Clubs of Virginia Districts 24-B, E, and F have fallen below that minimum requirement in clubs, members, or both.

In May 2016, Multiple District 24 approved a plan to consolidate the six existing districts into three.  Districts A and C are now District I, Districts E and F are now District C.  Districts B and D are now District I.  The new District I will have 96 clubs and approximately 2,298 members. Lions Clubs International has approved the merger plan. 

The new district will consist of six regions with seventeen zones lettered A through Q.  The district organization is:





Lynchburg// Danville/S. Boston

A and B


Amelia/ South Hill / Emporia

C and D


Greater Richmond Metro and counties

E, F, G, and H


NK, NN, MP, Newport News, Hampton Roads

I, J, and K


Norfolk/ Chesapeake/Sussex/Franklin

L, M, and N


Virginia Beach/Eastern Shore

P and Q

Districts 24 B and D each have standing operating procedures/standing rules.  Districts will share copies of each and will develop new procedures using best management practices.  The new procedures will become effective July 1, 2018

Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world every day because they share a core belief – to serve their community.

Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness.

Lions serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and mentoring.

Our Leo Program provides the youth of the world with an opportunity for personal development through volunteering.

Lions help during disasters. Together, Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction.

Lions are active. Our motto is "We Serve." Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.
