The Club meets once a month at a formal 'Business Meeting' when these topics are deliberated upon by the members and decisions are made.
In order to cover the necessary business in a reasonable time we have a number of sub-Committees that also meet monthly to deal with such topics as Community Service & Fundraising.
They then report back to the Business meetings with recommendations. Check out our club calendar for information about dates of our meetings.
Port Talbot Lions, in common with Lions throughout the World, like to enjoy themselves and not become too bogged down with stuffy meetings.
We are only too aware that the business of raising money, receiving and assessing requests for help and the disbursement of money raised has to be taken seriously.
Every year Lions Clubs elect a President and one or two Vice Presidents; the First Vice President deputises for the President in his/her absence.
The President chairs the Club's Business Meetings and provides guidance to the Club when necessary. The President appoints a Club Secretary, Hon Treasurer and the chairpersons of the various sub-Committees.
As we mentioned above, Lions do like to have a good time so every month there is a 'Dinner Meeting' which is also attended by partners and friends or, indeed, anybody who has an interest in what we do.
