GUYANA/PHILIPSBURG–Claudio Buncamper of St. Maarten Lions Club was elected as the incoming Second District Vice-Governor-elect for District 60B for 2019-2020 at the recently-held District 60B Convention in Georgetown, Guyana. His one-year term starts on July 1.
With Buncamper presumably being installed in May 2021 as District Governor of District 60B, he will be the fourth District Governor the local Lions Club will have produced, something not yet achieved by any Lions Club in Multiple District 60.
As part of the St. Maarten Lions Club 50th anniversary celebration in 2020-2021, the club will host the Multiple District 60 Convention in May 2021 with more than 400 Lions and Leos visiting St. Maarten from across Caribbean and Claudio presumably will be elected as District Governor for District 60B at the convention in St. Maarten.
With his new position, Buncamper adds to the list of former Leos who have made it to the top echelons locally and regionally. He will be the second District Governor produced by St. Maarten Leo Club, as his brother, past District Governor Claudius “Toontje” Buncamper also came from the Leo Club, thus making history, as St. Maarten Lions Club will then have produced two brothers making it to the top as District Governor.
After having held many positions in the club such as board member, treasurer, secretary and club president, Buncamper moved to holding two key positions on the district level: Zone Chairman for 2B, and Region 2 Chairman. The local Lions Club under his leadership as club president won the 2013-2014 Lions Club of the District Award for District 60B.
Buncamper hails from a Lions family. His father, the late Anthony Buncamper, served for many years as secretary of the local Lions Club and his late mother Jane Buncamper Harms served as the then-St. Maarten Lioness Club President.
