To facilitate your journey and to prepare you to perform at your maximum ability, TLC is providing an in-person Board Training ∧ Enrichment Weekend at TLC. Attendees will be treated to all meals and a two-night (2) stay at the Inn of the Hills.

TLC was founded in 1949.
Serving on the Executive Committee is a seven (7) year committment and involves travel as the committee meets quarterly at various locations around the state of Texas.
The elected directors are voting members of TLC's Board of Directors and are engaged on a monthly basis in the work of seeing that TLC has what it needs to operate. This is a working position with specific duties and expectations as the position serves as the primary liaison between their district and Texas Lions Camp. This is an elected position and each district elects two (2) Lions to serve in this capacity.
Perhaps most notably, the position serves as TLC's "sales force" and will be responsible for at least 15 speaking engagements per year, the aim of which is to educate, inspire and invite participation and financial giving to TLC. While there are many ways that clubs and districts may support the camp, the 100% program is the primary metric that is tracked and is an integral part of an elected director receiving the award and designation of being a 100% director.
For more information, please see the documents below.
When preparing for a club visit, public appearance or event, Board members may request donor records or research to assist in the promotion of TLC.
So that the Camp has an opportunity to keep an accurate record of its Elected Director activities, the following form will provide a quick and effective method of reporting and rewarding your hard work.
