*A reduced family dues structure was initiated a few years ago as International and Iowa Lions each reduced their dues for up to four others living in the household of the “head of household”who pays full dues. Same-household residency is not required for family members under age 26 if pursuing higher education or serving in their country’s military.
Example: A husband and wife yearly dues for July 1- June 30 ar $92.00 + 61.68 or $153.68. Add the $25 first-time only fee for each of them unless the are a student or verteran.
Example: If joining in March, pro-rated dues are 4/12 of $92.00 or $30.67 (add $25 as above if first time member) = 55.67 and each family member’s dues are 4/12 of $61.68 or $20.49 + $25 = 45.49. The first time only member fee is not pro-rated.
