When you join Ladies’ Circle (LC) you normally attend a meeting of a local Circle in your town/village. There you will make friends with members of that Circle. Eventually you will attend an Area meeting and meet Circlers in that Area and after that you will attend the country’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) and meet many more Circlers. Following this you may opt to attend the LCI AGM and then meet lots of Circlers from all over the world. As you can see friendship may be experienced, locally, nationally and internationally. It is a remarkable experience sharing a bond with ladies from different parts of the globe, different cultures, different up bringing and yet, sharing one common goal and language true friendship.
Every Circler endevours to make a difference to those less fortunate than them by supporting community projects and raising funds for the needy, locally and nationally. Globally Circlers also support an International Service Project which runs for two years. Sometimes it is only when we see, feel and touch that we can truly appreciate the need however if you are inquisitive it is easy to learn about needs of others and as they say ‘The Sky is the Limit’! The good feeling Circlers experience when they help others is something indescribable – it is all about service.
Locally a Circle is formed, this Circle is affiliated to an Area, and the Area is then affiliated to a Country. The Country then falls under the constraints of Ladies Circle International. Each Circle, Area and Country hold an AGM where office bearers are elected, financial reports are presented and discussed together with other associated business.
The highlight of the year is the Ladies Circle International AGM where all the Countries join together. Each year the International AGM is held in a different Country as decided through a vote by Councillors. The international office bearers are also elected at this AGM, and become the International Board.
