Our Leadership

Maintaining Our Mission – and Global Impact

Lions Clubs International develops leaders. Our leaders serve at every level of our organization and oversee everything from local membership to the organization’s international direction.

  • Our members have the opportunity to get involved in leading small projects and large initiatives.
  • We organize Lions clubs into districts, and each district has a governor.

These leaders meet our commitments, maintain our mission and ensure our global impact.  And, because they are Lions, all of our leaders are volunteers.

Founded in Chicago, Lions Clubs International has grown into a worldwide organization, helping where help is needed for nearly 100 years.

Our Structure

To ensure that Lions can do the work that is needed – and do it with fellowship and integrity – we structure our organization locally, regionally and internationally.

Our Leadership

Leaders at every level are volunteers. The organization supports our leaders with a wide range of tools, an international convention and impressive leadership development.

Our leaders come from around the world – but they all share a common bond: To Serve. They make their communities better. They support Lions in other countries.  And they are ready to help wherever help is needed.

Our President

Our international president serves for just one year. It is a demanding position, requiring international travel, meetings and administration.

Our Officers and Directors

Our international officers serve for one year. Our international directors serve for two years. And, being Lions, all are volunteers.
