Partner Alan Knowsley attended the Lions International Forum in Wellington recently. The conference was attended mainly by Lions from NZ, Australia, Indonesia and the Pacific but also in attendance were Lions from South Korea, India, Brazil, Lebanon, Canada, USA and Iceland.

Conference sessions included workshops on effective leadership, fundraising, designing projects, membership, international aid projects, and growing the involvement of younger people in Lions community service. Alan is the volunteer Legal Counsel for Lions New Zealand and is now in his 20th year in that role.

In a lighter moment Alan was presented with the Lions 2018 Mastermind trophy by International President Gudrun Ingvadottir (from Iceland).
