All Africa Conference History

The Africa Forum (AF) will have its first inaugural meeting in Lusaka, Zambia from 25th – 28th September 2019. After Africa was granted the 8th Constitutional area status the All Africa Conference changed its name to Africa Forum. The last All Africa Conference was held in Morocco.  The ALL AFRICA Conference (AAC) was the initiative of Past International Director, Julian Musikanth of District 411 - South Africa, who served from 1987 to 1989. The objectives of the AAC was to:

  1. Unite African lions with a common goal of growing membership in Africa
  2. Increase the number of service projects especially sight-related projects
  3. Enhance the visibility of Lionism in Africa
  4. Champion the creation of a constitutional area on the African Continent

Since then, succeeding International Directors (IDs) have continued to build on and host All Africa Conferences, namely:

 Past International Director Ashpoll Kapoor (Kenya) (1993/1995),
 Past International Director S.P Amin (Kenya) (2001/2003),
 Past International Director Manoj Shah (Kenya) (2005/2007),
 Past International Director H.O. B. Lawal (Nigeria) (2009/ 2011),
 Past International Director Alexis Gomès (Congo-Brazzaville) (2015/2017)​
 International Director Hastings Eli Chiti (Zambia) (2017/2019),

Initially, the All Africa Conference had no logo. A logo was launched at the All Africa Conference held in Tunis, Tunisia in February 2014  
The Logo is represented as follows:
a) 54 stars denoting the 54 African States surrounding the Lions logo which is the beaming light of Development on the African Continent.
b) The swirling movement denoting conscientious efforts of African States in increasing membership and an improving service delivery qualifying the status of a Constitutional Area.
c) The synergy of all the activities on the flag is the emerging Constitutional Area of Africa represented in white.

Hosting Districts are at liberty to design their own logo around the main All Africa Conference logo.

Zambia, in southern Africa, is a landlocked country of rugged terrain and diverse wildlife, with many parks and safari areas. On its border with Zimbabwe is famed Victoria Falls – indigenously called Mosi-oa-Tunya, or "Smoke That Thunders” – plunging a misty 108m into narrow Batoka Gorge. Spanning the Zambezi River just below the falls is Victoria Falls Bridge, a spectacular viewpoint.
