Update from Convention Chairperson

Thank you for your interest in the Convention.

Yes, this year has been very different and we have faced several issues but we are planning an exciting and interesting, COVID safe Convention that we know will appeal to Lions from around Australia as we emerge from lockdowns.


Conventioneers are requested to install the check in Canberra App on their phones, for Covid requirements. At this stage masks are a requirement, if you have a mask please bring it with you otherwise we will have a supply.


As there will be continued uncertainty,please rest assured that any registration payments will be fully refunded in the event of a cancellation to the Convention. We encourage you to book accommodation on a fully-refundable basis, and reserve making air travel bookings until closer to the event.


When you register, please note the following:


The Convention will commence on Friday 7 May 2021 at 8:30am and will conclude by 12:30pm on Monday following the Youth of the Year National finals.

Lunches: A range of meal opportunities will be provided at the Convention Centre and in adjacent shopping areas so there are no lunches to be pre-purchased. You are welcome to bring your lunch if you like.


Unfortunately the Cabinet Secretaries luncheon will not be held this year.


You can find the update program for the Convention here. The program remains subject to change and additions in the coming months.

We look forward to seeing as many as possible in Canberra in May.

Take care.

Ken McLeish
