The Global Action Team (GAT) Challenge

The GAT is a powerful bridge between Lions and the international association. It’s a field team specifically designed to connect clubs, districts, leaders and beyond to tools and resources developed to improve their service impact. Thus, GAT is also continuous loop of resources and feedback. From an initiative’s beginning to the time it reaches clubs, the team is set up to be agile and flexible, allowing the association to provide expertise while incorporating necessary changes as instructed by Lions. This is how we can, together, ensure everything delivered is at its best.

  1. What is the #GATChallenge?
#GATChallenge is a special initiative in MD 308 to engage all Lions and Leos member to take action in term of service, membership and leadership (learning) and create positive impact together in the end of the year.
  1. How and when can we report our achievement?

There is TWO ways to record your achievement. One is by digital platform google form, another one is passbook. All the action taken from 1st July 2020 onwards can be included in your achievement record and you may record your achievement once you complete all tasks in that level which you had choose to participate.  

  1. Why is it important to record our achievement #GATChallenge? What does MD 308 GAT do with this info?

As members of the world’s largest service club organization, Lions and Leos are in a unique position to improve their local communities while simultaneously contributing towards global causes. Our MD308 will use the data Lions and Leos provide to track progress made towards the #GATChallenge and to recognize Lions and Leos who participate. The data will also be used to demonstrate Lions and Leos’ commitment and contribution to the global sustainable development agenda to partner organizations, such as the United Nations, World Health Organization and some local authorities. 

  1. How do Leos and Lions qualify for #GATChallenge?

Once they completed the task listed in each level which they participated in. Lions and Leos must record their achievement in google form or passbook in order for our working team to verify and listed their name in the achiever list.

An individual can participate in one level at one time, complete each level of #GATChallenge for a total of 4 recognition. The #GATChallenge is ongoing in this fiscal year, so if an individual did not complete any level at first quarter, he can still participate and continue to complete the task to earn that recognition in the subsequent quarter.
