Ilo council

The ILO Council is the group of International Liaison Officers representing the Leo Districts and Multiple Districts of the European and Mediterranean region.

The ILO Council

The ILO Council is composed by 27 International Liaison Officers representing the Leo Districts and Multiple Districts of the European and the Mediterranean region. Each ILO fulfills its role as an individual but also contributes to the Leo movement as the member of the Council. To facilitate its functioning, the Council is divided into three Task Teams guided by a Board and further advised by the Advisory Panelists.


The Board

 The Board of the ILO Council is the leading body of the Council. Its main roles consist in:

– Structuring the ILO Council.
– Defining the Council’s vision.
– Establishing the communication channels between ILOs.
– Providing support to the organisation team of the Leo Europa Forum.
– Chairing monthly Council meetings.
– Representing the Council and European Leos on a worldwide scale.
– Addressing potential issues in the Council.
– Solving ad-hoc tasks that might arise during the year

The Board should be composed by at least one person (the Chairperson) and up to a maximum of three people to create a more democratic leadership, including a Secretary, who handles the administrative tasks of the Council. The Board has a mandate of one year and is responsible for the continuity of the Council’s existence. 


The Task Teams

European Activity

The European Activity eam is responsible for managing the international projects promoted by the ILO Council, including its planning, promotion and maintenance. Currently, the European Activity Team is managing two service projects: Leo4Green and Leo Fights Hunger. In case you want to know more, we invite you to contact the team via


Leo Tools

The Leo Tools team is responsible for creating practical tools to help Leos improve the movement in their countries, such as the Leo Map, to connect Leos across borders, the Experience Book, to share ideas of activities organized around the continent, the ILO Hall of Fame, to raise awareness of the current and past ILOs, and the Leo Survey, to gather data about the state and the future of the Leo Movement in Europe and the Mediterranean Region. If you want to provide any suggestions to the Leo Tools team, we encourage you to contact us via leotools@european-eu.



The Promotion team is tasked with the spreading of information from the ILO Council to Leos and the general public. The team is responsible for the updating of the European Leos website and the European Leo Clubs Facebook and Instagram pages. It creates regular newsletters and short meeting reports, as well as other online projects and campaigns. In case you want an article or a social media post to be shared by the our main social media platforms, feel free to contact the promotion team via


The Advisory Panelists

The ILO Council invites the Leo and Lion representatives of Europe in the Leo Club Program Advisory Panel and a representative of the Leo Club Program Department to join all its communication channels. Their role is to advise the Council on global matters and establish a communication channel between European Leos and the global movement.
