European Lions web portal

The Lions Task Force Europe agreed on the need for a permanent European Website, coupled with a file repository. This web portal will allow to have a permanent resource centre in order to make the information circulate, to increase the visibility of the actions of the Lions of Europe and to save documents, images, videos, etc. of the Lions activities in Europe, including the Forum.

The Lions Taskforce Europe (LTE), is a European working group, gathering the European current International Directors, LCIF Officers and Trustees, a group of 6 Past Directors, and international leaders of LCI and LCIF teams, such as the GAT and the LCIF CA Leaders.

The LTE meets reguarily with the pupose of sharing information from the Board of Directors, the Board of Trustees, the international operational teams, and making important and relevant information available to Lions Leaders in Europe.
