The Board of Directors has voted to cancel the 2020 Lions International Convention, making Montreal, Canada our next International Convention in 2021.
The Board of Directors has voted to cancel the 2020 International Convention due to concerns about the coronavirus (COVID-19). This means that the next International Convention will be held in 2021 in Montreal, Canada.
On March 20, I advised you that our 2020 convention would not be held in Singapore due to the limitations put in place by the Singapore Ministry of Health. After evaluating a variety of different options, including moving the convention to a different venue or postponing it to a later date, the Board of Directors voted to cancel the 2020 convention. This decision was made with the health and safety of our Lions, staff and vendors in mind.
In the meantime, our Convention Team will be working diligently to assist you. Lions International will issue full refunds for all registration fees paid. At this time, we kindly ask that you do not contact Lions International Registration to inquire about your registration, ticket or housing cancellations as we are still in the process of establishing our cancellation details.
We are disappointed that we will not be able to move forward with this international event, but we are optimistic that with each new day there is hope, and as Lions we will continue to find new ways to put our kindness in action while safely serving our communities.
